The heavily tattooed Rowe and Dubose were shirtless on the ground, laying on their stomachs, hands cuffed behind their backs and staring up at more than a dozen law enforcement members.

Law enforcement officials earlier captured Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose, two escaped inmates wanted in the slayings of two Georgia prison guards. "So I'm totally grateful to everyone involved".

They held the couple at gunpoint, tied them up and remained in the home until about 5:30 p.m., Sheriff Swing said.

Deputies spotted the vehicle and chased it for 20 miles (32 kilometers) at high-speed, Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Bill Miller said. The chase of the two suspects soon came to an end when the vehicle they had carjacked crashed, causing them to flee into the woods.

The trucker said that he saw two men who looked like they might be trying to steal vehicles. But the homeowner stepped out and held the men at gunpoint, with the assistance of another neighbor, until police arrived.

Proposed DUP deal would not undermine Good Friday Agreement, insists May
"I am looking forward to travelling to Downing Street today to meet the British Prime Minister, Theresa May ", he said. She repeated that Sinn Féin wanted to reach agreement but one that was based on equality, respect and integrity.

In a statement released by the Georgia Department of Corrections, they said, "Both officers were known for their unwavering commitment to their job and their love of family".

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal ® commended the "tireless efforts" of law enforcement that led to the capturing of these "dangerous fugitives". Eastbound traffic was diverted off I-24 at the Buchanan exit (mile marker 89), because TBI agents were collecting evidence at the interstate crash and run scene, 2-miles east of that point.

The corrections department identified the victims as Christopher Monica, 42, who began working there in 2009, and Curtis Billue, 58, who would have marked his 10th anniversary with the department next month.

The two inmates overpowered guards around 6:45 a.m. Tuesday while they were being driven to another prison with 33 other inmates.

Late Tuesday night, about 12 hours after the home burglary, the pair stole a Ford pickup truck from a rock quarry about 14.5 kilometres from the burglarized home. Gwyn said Thursday he wasn't sure who would be collecting the money.

Monica and Billue were transfer sergeants at Baldwin State Prison, where Rowe, 43, had been serving life without parole since 2002, and Dubose, 24, began a 20-year sentence in 2015, both for armed robbery and other felonies.

Monica, 42, a sergeant, worked for the department for nearly eight years and leaves a wife.

Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills said the inmates fled the bus near Eatonton, about 70 miles southeast of Atlanta.

By about 5pm the two men were on the run again, in the couple's Jeep.
