FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - An eighth person has been charged in the escape of a murder suspect who bolted from a Florida courthouse.

Court records show 21-year-old Armonie Frankson-Dennis is accused of helping 21-year-old Dayonte Resiles avoid capture after his escape from the Broward County courthouse.

The Sun Sentinel (https://bit.ly/2axlh2P ) reports she appeared in court Wednesday and is being held on $150,000 bail.

Resiles fled the court July 15 and was on the lam nearly a week before his capture at a West Palm Beach motel. He is charged in the stabbing death of a woman whose family founded the Halliburton oil services company.

Authorities say Frankson-Dennis was spotted with Resiles on surveillance video at a flea market after his escape. Her attorney says she came forward to help investigators.
