48-year-old Michelle Walters now faces charges of aiding escape, which is a felony.

David Watson and Nicky Shell are now both charged with escape. Shell also has outstanding warrants in Hamilton County for aggravated burglary, possession of burglary tools, burglary, and evading arrest.

All three are now at the Hamilton County Jail.

The Walker County Sheriff's Office says they will extradite the three to the State of Georgia to answer to the Court for their charges.
