A woman awaiting trial in the killing of professional cyclist tried to run from officers

A woman awaiting trial in the killing of professional cyclist Anna Moriah Wilson tried to run from officers escorting her to a doctor appointment Wednesday.  Two corrections officers had taken Kaitlin Armstrong to the appointment and were escorting her back to a patrol vehicle when she ran. Armstrong ran more than a block into a neighborhood, but she could be seen by deputies the entire time before she was caught. It was not disclosed whether Armstrong was wearing shackles on her arms or legs, or what medical treatment prompted the appointment outside of the jail clinic. Wilson, a 25-year-old competitive gravel and mountain bike racer from Vermont, was in Austin for a race when she was found shot to death. Armstrong, 34, fled the country after her initial interviews with investigators, prompting a 43-day manhunt that ended with her arrest in Costa Rica. Armstrong was charged with murder. She faces up to 99 years in prison if convicted. Armstrong has pleaded not guilty.
