A prisoner has more on his rap sheet after kicking out a window of a transport vehicle in an attempt to escape Tuesday, the Martin County Sheriff’s Department reports.
Todd Whitt, 35, of Louisa is now facing charges of escape and criminal mischief on top of two counts of attempted murder following two stabbings he committed last year.
In early June 2021, Todd Whitt was arrested following a pair of stabbings that started at a home along Buffalo Horn Road in Louisa, Kentucky, located near the Lawrence County/Martin County line.
At the time of the incidents, deputies stated that Todd Whitt stabbed a woman inside her home. When she ran to a nearby home in search of help, deputies said that Todd Whitt followed her and ended up stabbing a neighbor of the woman as well.
Todd Whitt was transported safely in custody in a second Martin County jail transport vehicle and was taken back to the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center in Paintsville in Johnson County.
