    Pamlico
    County

    RALEIGH (AP) - Authorities
    today sought a convicted murderer who
    escaped
    during a visit to a New Bern doctor outside the
    privately-run
    prison where he was being held.

    Glenn E.
    Jacobs, 37, who is currently serving time for armed
    robbery
    and being a habitual felon, escaped from the
    doctor's office about 3:15
    p.m. Tuesday, state
    Department of Correction officials said. He was
    under
    the supervision of armed guards from Pamlico
    Correctional
    Facility when he escaped. The Bayboro prison is a
    medium-custody
    unit run by Corrections Corp. of America.


    The escapee still was at large this morning, said
    Tracy Little, a
    Correction Department
    spokeswoman.

    Jacobs was convicted of second-degree murder in
    1988 in Cumberland
    County and sentenced to 20
    years in prison. He escaped on Feb. 27,
    1992 and
    was recaptured April 3, 1992. He was paroled in
    February
    1996.

    Jacobs was first sent to prison in
    December 1983 after being convicted
    in Cumberland
    County of larceny and receiving stolen goods. He was

    sentenced to three years in prison and paroled in January
    1985.

    Jacobs' latest escape came while he was serving a
    sentence of 119
    months to 152 months for a 1996
    conviction in Wake County.

    In September 1986,
    Jacobs, formerly of Hope Mills, shot and killed
    Louie
    Kenneth Locklear Jr. inside a mobile home, Cumberland
    County
    sheriff's deputies said.
