EFFINGHAM, Ga. (CBS46) -- Law enforcement officials are searching for a man who they say escaped custody of the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office Monday night.

The inmate, 32-year-old Kevin David Lenix Wilson, was being held for the Rincon Police Department on numerous charges including Malice Murder, One Count of Felony Murder, Aggravated Assault, Armed Robbery and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.
