Shawn Barb Indicted on Prisoner Escape

Posted: Updated:

The case against an inmate who escaped a work detail last summer is moving forward.

An Augusta County grand jury indicted 36-year-old Shawn Milton Barb on a charge of prisoner escape.

Barb and 28-year-old Joshua Ryan Ansell took off last August while working at the regional landfill in Jollivue. Both are inmates at the Cold Springs Correctional Unit in Greenville.

Authorities caught the escaped convicts later that same day.

Ansell has a trial set for May 30.
