Ala jail escapee caught in Ky

Posted: Updated:

An Alabama jail escapee is back in custody after being captured in Kentucky. 

WAFF-TV (http://bit.ly/16z8hj7 ) reports federal marshals arrested Terry Myers late Thursday after a two-hour standoff at his mother's home in Laurel County, Ky. 

Myers was reported missing from the Lauderdale County Jail on April 22. 

Sheriff Ronnie Willis says Myers escaped through the ventilation system. Three more inmates escaped from the jail's ventilation system in September.
