CHICAGO (Reuters) - An accused murderer who overpowered guards and escaped from an Oklahoma jail in a stolen police car was back behind bars late on Sunday, authorities said.
Shaun Bosse, who was awaiting trial on three counts of first-degree murder and one count of arson, was recaptured near the town of Blanchard, the McClain County Sheriff's Office said.
"He was recaptured without incident this afternoon and he is being transferred back to jail," Deputy Eric Venegas told Reuters.
Bosse overpowered two deputies at a jail in Purcell on Sunday morning, grabbed a set of car keys and fled in a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix, which was later found abandoned.
News reports said Bosse is accused of murdering Katrina Griffin, 24, and her two children, Christian, 8, and Chastity, 6, whose bodies were found in a blazing mobile home last year.
