Convicted Arkansas killer captured after prison escape

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A convicted Arkansas killer who escaped while on a work detail has been captured.

Arkansas Department of Correction spokesman Solomon Graves says 40-year-old Lloyd Jones was caught Thursday just after 3 p.m. Graves says he was apprehended about 5 miles away from where he escaped Monday.

Jones was on a work detail about 3 miles from the East Arkansas Unit in Brickeys. Graves says the department will be conducting an internal review regarding the escape to determine whether any policy changes are needed.

Jones was serving a 60-year sentence after being convicted of strangling 16-year-old Angela Allen and stuffing her body into a barrel.

The Department of Correction had no immediate comment on any addition charges Jones may face.
