The man accused in the shooting death of prominent late-abortion provider Doctor George Tiller has left the Johnson County Jail in Kansas. Scott Roeder was driven away from the facility in New Century in an unmarked white Ford Taurus with what appeared to be a guard in the back seat. Police say he shot and killed Tiller Sunday (5-31) while he was serving as an usher at the Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita. According to investigators, Roeder walked into the church, opened fire and drove off in a light blue Ford Taurus. Tiller became a pivotal figure in the abortion debate for performing abortions after the 21st week at his Kansas women's clinic. It's one of a handful in the nation to do so and has been the focus of numerous demonstrations. This is not the first time Tiller has been targeted. Back in 1993, a protester shot him in both arms. Before that, his clinic was bombed in 1985 . Roeder is expected to be formally charged with murder and aggravated assault this week. No word yet on exactly where he was taken. The shooting remains under investigation. SUPERS: New Century, KS VIDEO INFO: VO: WS white car with suspect and police escort, leaving parking lot.
