Wilbarger County jail officials say 52-year-old Roger Goodall signed extradition papers and was transferred Tuesday morning.
He was arrested Saturday at a Vernon motel by Texas Rangers and U.S. Marshals after a tip was received.
Authorities believe he escaped with the help of his wife, who faces charges for aiding his escape.
Goodall was jailed in Sulphur while awaiting transfer to prison to serve time for assault with a dangerous weapon.
