Inmate who escaped Md. prison to return from W. Va.

A man captured in West Virginia after talking his way out of prison has agreed to be sent back to Maryland.

Raymond T. Taylor was serving three life terms for attempted murder when he escaped Feb. 25 from the Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center in Baltimore. He escaped after swapping photo identification cards with his cellmate.

Taylor was captured the following morning in West Virginia.

During a Berkeley County (W.Va.) Circuit Court hearing Monday, Taylor, 26, of New York waived his right to challenge his extradition from West Virginia.

Taylor was convicted in 2005 of what prosecutors called the attempted slayings of his ex-girlfriend and her two teenage daughters. All three victims survived gunshot wounds to the head.
