Hulking Casey White has appeared in court for allegedly escaping prison after 11 days on the run with his secret prison boss lover.
The 6’9-inch giant appeared before an Alabama judge late Tuesday night after arresting and killing warden Vicky White, who was the architect behind her apparent escape.
Ms White shot herself in the head when police finally caught the couple after a dramatic chase in Evansville, Indiana.
The couple – who were not related – are said to have been on the run for 11 days after Vicky White, 56, made a fake doctor’s appointment for the criminal on April 29.
White was being held temporarily at her Lauderdale County jail in Florence so she could transport him from his cell.

Unbeknownst to authorities, however, she was romantically involved with White for two years while he was serving time for a series of crimes.
White, 38, was heavily bound at his ankles and with chains around his waist and wrists as he stood before a judge in Florence, Alabama, eclipsing his captors.
He spoke only to reassure Judge Ben Graves that he had received proper legal advice when charged with first-degree evasion.
It was added to a list of crimes White faces, including a pending capital murder charge for which he is due to stand trial in June.

White’s appearance came as newly released 911 audio reveals the moment Vicky White implored her jailbird lover to “get out and run” as police closed in.
In the seven-minute audio clip, the Assistant Warden of the Lauderdale County Jail can be heard yelling, “Stop. Stop. The airbags go off.”
Then, in a quieter voice, she can be heard saying, “Let’s get out and run.”
It’s unclear who called 911 from the Cadillac the couple was driving in to evade police.

Seconds after she said her last words, her car was rammed into a ditch by US Marshals and Vicky, who was driving the vehicle, shot herself in the head.
Before she pulled the trigger, another tape could be heard police chasing after them, saying, “She’s got her finger on the trigger.”
She held the gun in her right hand and the gun was one of four found in her vehicle.
The local coroner ruled her death a suicide.
