Escaped Georgia inmates captured in Tennessee

Dubose, 24, and Rowe, 43, were captured in Rutherford County, Tenn., about a hour's drive from Rowe's former home of Lewisburg, Tenn.

On Tuesday morning, a nationwide manhunt for two Georgia convicts was set in motion after the prisoners murdered two guards before escaping from the compound. Each had served the department for several years.

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.

A Georgia sheriff says it's too early to tell when two inmates accused in the killings of two guards on a prison bus will be returned to the state after their capture in Tennessee.

Two inmates who escaped from a prison bus in Georgia by allegedly killing guards were recaptured near Murfreesboro Thursday night after holding hostages and leading local police on a high speed chase.

Georgia governor Nathan Deal applauded the "tireless efforts" of law enforcement but also turned his thoughts to the families of the two officers, saying their pain remains.

Rowe and DuBose were then spotted in Rutherford County on I-24 at mile marker 91 which led to a shootout between them and police. With help from a neighbor, the man held the two escapees at gunpoint until law enforcement arrived to arrest them.

Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Bill Miller said a homeowner in Christiana was alerted that people were outside his home and he saw the men trying to steal his vehicle.

Billue, 58, a 10-year employee, is survived by his father, brother and sister, Georgia Department of Corrections Commissioner Greg Dozier said.

Meghan Markle is a girl with many talents, one of them allowed her to get the first job, which surprised everyone very much. While the rules have relaxed since the 1950s, the Queen must still give her nod of approval before Harry makes a move.

Shots were fired on the officers, but deputies did not return fire, Rutherford County Sheriff Michael Fitzhugh said.

"Earlier tonight, with the assistance of our law enforcement partners in Tennessee, unsafe fugitives were captured and taken into custody", Deal said in the press release. "We will do everything in our power to support their loved ones, and we will not forget their sacrifice and service".

The saga began with what could have been a scene out of a movie: 33 inmates were riding on a Georgia corrections bus as they were being driven to another prison.

Rowe and DuBose had been on the run since early Tuesday morning when they allegedly shot and killed two corrections officers in Georgia while they were being transferred to another facility by transport bus.

The escaped inmates left the auto and fled on foot in the area. Gwyn was not immediately sure who would collect the reward.

It was the first of four cars they stole on the run, authorities said.

Sheriff Howard R. Sills of Putnam County, Ga., said the truck stolen in Georgia was abandoned in Moore County, Tenn., about 75 miles southeast of Nashville.

They were able to get through a locked gate and overpower two officers, one of whom was driving the transport bus.
