The Van Buren County Sheriff's office says that convicted murder Rodney Lee Jones has escaped from the Van Buren County Jail.

Jones was sentenced to Life Without parole earlier this month for the murder of his ex-wife.

Prosecutors said Jones drove from Colorado to Van Buren County and shot his wife in front of her new husband and three children.
