The arraignment for escaped inmate, Curtis Watson, was held this afternoon. He faces first-degree murder, especially aggravated burglary, aggravated sexual battery and escape charges. In court today, the judge ordered Watson to be held without bond and set a preliminary hearing date for September 25, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. in Lauderdale County, Tennessee. Watson was captured last Sunday morning after an intense manhunt. His capture took place just 10 miles away from the prison he escaped from last Wednesday. The search for Watson began after 64-year-old West Tennessee Correctional Administrator Debra Johnson was found dead in her residence on the property of the West Tennessee State Penitentiary. Investigators said she had been strangled and sexually assaulted.  Watson was at the prison serving a 15-year sentence on a conviction of especially aggravated kidnapping in Henry County.
