(ROCKVILLE) - A prison guard is accused of helping a convicted murderer escape from the Rockville correctional facility.

Authorities say guard Scott Spitler was arrested Tuesday on preliminary charges of assisting a criminal, official misconduct, sexual misconduct and trafficking with an inmate.

Police say Spitler hid 29-year-old Sarah Pender of Nineveh in a prison vehicle and drove her outside the medium-security prison.

Pender was convicted of killing two former roommates in 2000. She remains at large.
