Kurt Wallace, 26, and James Flannel, 38, used broken parts of an electric hair clipper to make the improvised saw they used to weaken and rip off a metal bar in their cell and escape about 8:10 p.m., according to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
Wallace is accused of killing De Smet Jesuit High School assistant football coach Jaz Granderson during an October 2017 carjacking attempt, along with other carjacking charges. When he was 17, he was one of two teens who escaped the medium-security jail known as the St. Louis Workhouse in June 2010.
Flannel is accused of killing Laclede Cab driver Boris Iouioukine during a carjacking in June 2018.
