Wilkerson was charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Unlawful Possession of a Methamphetamine Precursor, Drug Paraphernalia, Trafficking of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of Marijuana.

On Monday, March 18, Inmate Michael Padgett was being transported by Daviess County Sherriff’s Deputies to the Judicial Center in downtown Owensboro, when officers received information that Padgett had allegedly manufactured a potential weapon from a piece of metal, and intended to attack a bailiff and escape. Deputies assigned to the Judicial Center searched the subject in his holding cell, and did not find any weapons.

Upon arrival at the scene, the residence was enveloped in flames, but all occupants were safely out of the home. The home next door had to be evacuated as well, because there was a potential of flames spreading.
