The intense manhunt for two escaped murderers in upstate New York hit its 10th day as a woman charged with helping the killers flee from prison appeared in court Monday.Prosecutors say Joyce Mitchell, a prison tailoring shop instructor who had befriended the inmates, had agreed to be the getaway driver but backed out because she still loved her husband and felt guilty for participating.That has led searchers to believe the men are still near the maximum-security prison in Dannemora.Wylie said Sunday that the killers apparently cut their way out using tools stored by prison contractors, taking care to return them to their toolboxes after each night's work.Workers on Sunday welded shut a manhole at the base of a wall on the side of the prison where the two men escaped.
