GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — A woman has been charged in connection to a federal prisoner’s escape, according to court documents.

According to a criminal complaint filed with the Middle District of North Carolina, between April 29 and May 1, Adriana Marin-Sotelo “committed the following federal offense: conspiracy to instigate or assist escape” in the escape of Alder Alfonso Marin-Sotelo, who was connected to the shooting death of Wake County Deputy Ned Byrd last year.

According to the documents, Alder Marin-Sotelo was seen on video surveillance escaping from Piedmont Regional Jail just before 2 a.m. on April 30. He was seen on surveillance several hours later leaving in a red Mustang.

Agents began reviewing phone calls that Alder Marin-Sotelo and another suspected co-conspirator had made from the jail prior to Alder Marin-Sotelo’s escape.

According to the documents, on April 28, one of the co-conspirators, who has not been indicted, called their sibling, identified as “unindicted co-conspirator 2.”

During that phone call, the caller tells their sibling to “pick up the getaway car” in High Point. During a follow-up phone call later that day, the caller gave “co-conspirator 2” a phone number belonging to Adriana Marin-Sotelo, telling them to talk to her and arrange a pickup spot for the car and have it in place by midnight.

The next day, Alder Marin-Sotelo called Adriana Marin-Sotelo and told her to get the car and $2500 to co-conspirator 2, who was with her at the time of this phone call from Alder Marin-Sotelo.

Co-conspirator 2 was seen on a video call with the first caller that night, showing them that they were leaving the car, a red Mustang, in the parking lot of the jail. Then early Sunday morning, Alder Marin-Sotelo is allegedly seen climbing the fence and leaving in the red Mustang.

The first co-conspirator spoke with co-conspirator 2 later Sunday morning and they discussed not being able to get in touch with Adriana Marin-Sotelo for the additional $2500 Alder Marin-Sotelo had allegedly instructed her to pay them.

Investigators were told by co-conspirator 1 that Adriana Marin-Sotelo had bought the car for $3000 and given it to co-conspirator 2 in order to leave it in the jail parking lot for Alder Marin-Sotelo’s escape. Co-conspirator 2 told investigators that they met Adriana Marin-Sotelo at Palacious Automotive in High Point and got the car from her.
