Escaped Murder Suspects Captured in Ga.
PHENIX CITY, Ala. - Two escaped murder suspects from Alabama were apprehended in Georgia on Tuesday, three days after they escaped from jail, authorities said.
Ashley Mangum, a case worker with the Russell County Sheriff's Department, said Johnny Earl Jones and Lamar Elan Benton were arrested, but she had no other details. Television station WTVM in Columbus, Ga., reported the two were apprehended without incident at the Georgian Motel there after investigators received a tip.
Jones, 17, was charged in the murder of a child he was baby-sitting for, and Benton, 19, was charged in the murder and rape of a 39-year-old woman.
They fled from the Russell County Jail in Phenix City, which is across the Chattahoochee River from Columbus, Ga., early Saturday. One guard was wounded.
A third murder suspect, 33-year-old Brent Edward Martin, got out with Jones and Benton but was quickly recaptured by officers using tracking dogs and helicopters.
Like many jails in Alabama, the Russell County Jail is operating beyond its designed capacity of 220. It held more than 280 inmates when the escape happened, but overcrowding was not a factor, Russell County Sheriff Thomas Boswell said.
