CARRABELLE, Fla. (970 WFLA) A couple of convicted murderers walked out of the Franklin Correctional Institution in Carrabelle. 34 year old Charles Walker was freed on October 8th. He was serving a life sentence for second degree murder. 34 year old Joseph Jenkins left the prison on September 27th. Jenkins was serving time for a first degree murder conviction.
