Inmate crashes out of Iowa jail in stolen transport van

A prison inmate being transferred to jail after a court appearance shot two deputies, killing one, in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on Monday, according to authorities.

Authorities said Deputy Burbridge was killed on Monday when Wesley Correa-Carmenaty was being transporting to the Council Bluffs jail. He later carjacked a female motorist and led police on a chase from the Iowa jail into Omaha, Neb., with speeds reaching 80 miles per hour, according to the paper.

The deadly trail of the case turned down the path of accountability as Correa-Carmenaty appeared in a Douglas County courtroom under heavy security. "Then we'll defer to Pottawattamie County and dismiss our charges", said Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine. One deputy died later.

Police quickly located Correa-Carmenaty, and a high-speed chase ensued before he crashed the vehicle into a wall at Cuming Street and an Interstate 480 entrance ramp.

Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said the deputy's gun was recovered at the site of Correa-Carmenaty's capture. The other deputy, 10-year veteran Pat Morgan, is expected to survive.

"The issue of fighting extradition you don't really just get to say I don't want to go". The banks can be found in Council Bluffs, Treynor, Macedonia, Atlantic, and Corning, Iowa. Omaha Police pursued Correa in the stolen Nissan Sentra after he dropped off a woman who was still in the vehicle near R.L.'s Liquor at 30th & Laurel.




Schmaderer released a statement on the Omaha department's Facebook page saying, "Today, the Pottawattamie County Sheriff's Office tragically lost a deputy in the line of duty".

Correa-Carmenaty was sentenced at Pottawattamie County Courthouse this morning to 45 years in prison.

"No words can express the hurt that we feel as a family", the sheriff's office said on its Facebook page.

Carmenaty is now being held in Douglas County jail on charges including of kidnapping, using a weapon to commit a felony, operating a vehicle to avoid arrest, and felon in possession of a firearm.

Sources say that the funeral for Deputy Burbridge will be held Monday at the Mid-America Center.

Wilber said Correa-Carmenaty faces several charges in Iowa including first-degree murder, two counts of attempted first-degree murder and kidnapping. The most recent death was in 1981.
