An Arkansas killer who escaped the Dallas County Jail in Fordyce by draping a blanket over razor wire and clambering over a fence early Monday was nabbed several hours later, NBC News reported.
Paul Grice, known as "Shortycane," was captures at 11:10 a.m. local time in Monticello, Arkansas — some 50 miles east of the jail, police said.
It was not immediately clear how the escapee was captured or how he managed to get that far from the lockup.
Grice, 38, was being held for aggravated burglary with a firearm and was awaiting a prison transfer when he made his escape. According to family members, he made a stop at his cousin's house in Montongo, but quickly left.
Grace was charged and did time for second-degree murder in the '90s, according to KARK 4 News.
