William S. Key escapee captured

Woodward, Okla. — An escapee from William S. Key correctional facility is back behind bars.

Floyd L. Miller, 42, was apprehended Thursday afternoon in Woodward, said Linda Eike, warden's assistant.

Eike said Miller was taken into custody without incident by Dennis McCaslin with the prison's CERT team. He was caught at 28th and Kansas at 2:25 p.m.

Eike said Miller was currently at WS Key but would likely be moved to another prison. He has been charged in Woodward County District Court in conjunction with the escape.

Miller was noticed missing from the prison around 7:30 a.m. on March 17. He was serving a 15-year sentence for producing methamphetamine and also had a previous extortion conviction.

There was a report on Wednesday night’s police log that a person matching Miller’s description had been given a ride to a truck stop on the west side of Woodward. Police responded to the area but didn’t find Miller.
