White, 38, and his accomplice, corrections officer Vicky White, 56, crashed their car after leading police on a high-speed car chase.
She died in hospital on Monday night from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
He was arrested in Evansville, Indiana.

Casey White was serving a 75-year sentence for multiple crimes when he confessed to a 2015 murder. Vicky White, who said she was taking him for a mental health evaluation, ran away with him on April 29
The pair were carrying $29,000 in cash, four handguns and an AR-15 rifle and were prepared for a shootout when they were captured, an Indiana sheriff said on Tuesday.
The end of the manhunt left authorities trying to piece together what happened during the 11 days that elapsed after Vicky White escorted Casey White from a Florence, Alabama, jail for what she falsely claimed was a mental health evaluation.
The inmate and Vicky White appeared to have had a ‘jailhouse romance,’ Alabama authorities said last week. They were not related.
As for her role in the escape, the sheriff said: ‘He was not forcing her. It was a mutual relationship.’

At the time of the breakout, Casey White was serving a 75-year prison sentence for attempted murder and other offenses and was awaiting trial on charges of stabbing a woman to death during a 2015 burglary.

If convicted, he could get the death penalty.
Investigators believe the pair spent about six days holed up at a motel in Evansville.
Authorities discovered wigs intended to hide their identities.
Dave Wedding, sheriff of Vandenburgh County, said investigators do not believe the two had relatives or other contacts in the city of 120,000.
‘They thought they’d driven long enough. They wanted to stop for a while, get their bearings straight and then figure out the next place to travel,’ the sheriff said.
Authorities closed in on them after the manager of a car wash reported that a man closely resembling the 6-foot-9, 260-pound Casey White had been recorded by a surveillance camera getting out of a pickup truck.
Investigators said they located the pickup, then learned that the pair may have switched to a Cadillac, which was then spotted outside a motel nearby.
When the couple left the motel, police chased them down, authorities said.
Casey White told investigators after his capture that ‘he was probably going to have a shootout at the stake of both of them losing their lives,’ the sheriff said.
The inmate appeared by video Tuesday in an Indiana courtroom, where he waived extradition, and authorities said he will be sent back to Alabama.
An attorney representing White in the murder case, Jamy Poss, declined to comment.
Vicky White, assistant director of corrections at the Lauderdale County jail, had put in for retirement ahead of the escape, and the day of the breakout, April 29, was her last day of work.
A woman who worked with her for 16 years could barely speak through tears on Tuesday.
‘I know she did wrong and made a terrible mistake, but she’s still your friend,’ said Sherry Sylvester, a longtime jail employee.
She said that White often tried to help prisoners, particularly ones without family.
But Sylvester said she never saw White do anything that crossed the line.
‘She did everything by the book,’ Sylvester said.
Connie Moore, Casey White’s mother, said she last spoke with him by phone the day before the escape.
She said her son may not have known what was about to happen.
‘Everything was just as normal as it could be. I doubt he even knew he was leaving when she came in there to get him,’ Moore said.
A warrant was issued on May 2 for Vicky White charging her with permitting or facilitating escape.
Authorities said the plan appeared to have been in the works for some time.
She sold her house for about half its market value and bought an SUV that she stashed at a shopping center without license plates.
