NELSONVILLE, Ohio (AP) — The second of the three inmates who escaped from a community-based corrections facility in southeast Ohio has been captured.
An official at SEPTA Correctional Facility in Nelsonville says 25-year-old Justin Stanley was caught Monday in Newark. Authorities say Stanley and 30-year-old David Skeens escaped from the 112-bed prison in Nelsonville early Saturday while 29-year-old Troy Byrd escaped hours later. Skeens was arrested Saturday morning in Heath, Ohio. Byrd remains on the loose.
The state-funded facility houses prisoners from 14 southeast Ohio counties sentenced to a maximum of 180 days for low-level felony crimes. SEPTA supervisor Brenda Ostrander says the men climbed over a fence topped with razor wire to escape.
Ostrander says officials have asked the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction to assess security measures at the facility.
