PATTONSBURG, Mo. (CBS/AP) Police say convicted murderer Carlos Sarmiento and two other inmates, who escaped from a northwest Missouri jail by crawling under a fence, are back in custody.
The Daviess County Sheriff's Office says 57-year-old Sarmiento and 34-year-old Timothy J. Baudour were caught Tuesday afternoon. Another escaped inmate, 26-year-old Nicholas D. McCleary, was arrested around noon Tuesday.
The men broke out of the Daviess/DeKalb County jail Sunday night by crawling under a fence in the recreation area.
Sarmiento was awaiting sentencing for beating his roommate to death with a hammer, and Baudour was convicted of assault. McCleary was first convicted of property damage and a previous attempted jail escape.
Two women have been charged with conspiracy and accused of purchasing the wire cutter used in the escape.
