Adair County authorities say a convicted killer who escaped from the county jail with another inmate is back in custody.

Sheriff David Hardin says inmates Carlos Locust and Michael Pack overpowered a jailer around 10:30 p.m. Sunday and escaped. The jailer suffered minor injuries.

Pack was recaptured about four hours later and taken back into custody. Locust turned himself in just before midnight Monday. 

Hardin says sheriff's deputies as well as the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the U.S. Marshals Service helped with the search for Locust.

He turned himself in for life. That is almost unbelievable. Not saying it's not true js it's almost unbelievable. I guess he missed his three hots and a cot. Institutionalized :-)

so I like how on the 5 o'clock news they make the statement that they are tracking a possible cell phone he might have on him.........hope no one that could be possibly aiding him was watching and told him to now ditch the phone. Just seems that that is information you wouldn't want to get out just yet.
