OGLETHORPE, GA (WALB) - For the second time in just over a year, a manhunt is underway for 22-year-old Cordalero Collier. Authorities searched for the accused killer last August following a deadly stabbing. This weekend, the Montezuma man was on the run again after escaping from the Macon County Jail late Friday night.

Walker died later that day at Flint River Community Hospital. Her sister was airlifted to a Macon Hospital. She survived the attack.

Collier was arrested the following day in Macon County when turned himself in to a deputy. The motive in the case, according to authorities, was jealousy.

Collier was being held in the Macon County Jail on charges of malice murder, felony Murder, and aggravated assault.
