HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

A convicted killer with ties to the coast has escaped from the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Pearl. And it's not his first time escaping from behind bars. 

Mark Kee Brown escaped around 10pm Sunday night, according to the Mississippi Department of Corrections. MDOC officials said the 36-year-old was last seen wearing the standard inmate issued black and white striped pants and a white shirt with "MDOC Convict" printed on the back. Brown is described as a black man, 5'8" tall and weighing around 155 lbs.

He was serving a life sentence for the capital murder of a D'Iberville resident. Larry Darnell Turner was shot to death during a home invasion in 2005. Last week, a state Court of Appeals upheld his conviction.

Prison officials have not said how Brown escaped this time.

In 2008, Brown was one of the inmates that used a door to smash through a cell block wall and break out of the Harrison County Adult Detention Center. He was captured three days later.

Anyone with any information of Brown's whereabouts should contact the Mississippi Department of Corrections at (601) 359-5600.
