It's unclear how the three alleged accomplices, who are also residents of West Virginia, assisted Ward, and the RCSO isn't giving any details because the case is still being investigated.
All three suspects are being charged with aiding in Ward's escape. Moore has an additional charge for possessing someone else's identification without that person's consent.
All three suspects are in Rockdale County Jail. Ward is still on the run.
