    Police and corrections officials in Maryland are looking for an inmate who walked away from his work assignment.

    Police say 30-year-old Jermaine Jeter left a Baltimore detention facility Friday morning and never reported to his scheduled work-release job at an area Checkers restaurant.

    Authorities say Jeter was nearing the end of a prison sentence for second-degree murder. Prison spokesman Mark Vernarelli says inmates such as Jeter are given work-release jobs to help with their transition back to society.
