Brother Of Escaped Inmate’s Victim Faces Charges

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Police say the brother of an escaped inmate’s murder victim has been arrested and accused of making threats against the inmate’s relatives.

Orlando Police officials say Willie Slater Jr. was arrested Monday on an outstanding warrant and booked into the Orange County Jail. He is the brother of Cedric Slater, who was slain 15 years ago by Charles Walker.

Walker and Joseph Jenkins were captured earlier this month at a Panama City motel. Authorities say they used forged court orders to secure release from the Franklin Correctional Institution in the Panhandle. The forged orders purportedly cut their sentences from life to 15 years.

Police officials say Willie Slater Jr. made credible threats to Walker’s relatives after Walker was mistakenly released. Slater faces charges of aggravated stalking and threats to kill.
