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.

He is described as 5 feet 10 inches tall and 148 pounds. His last know whereabouts was in the Oglethorpe area near North Sumter Street where the Macon County Jail is located. J

Jail personnel reported his escape Saturday morning and a manhunt followed for the suspected killer.

It was August 7, 2008 when Collier was accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend 19-year-old Shenita Walker and her sister, Sheranda Auburn, then 7 months pregnant, multiple times at a home in the 600 block of Plum Street in Montezuma.

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.
