LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- One of two inmates who escaped from the Blackburn Correctional Complex has been captured in central Kentucky.
Garrard County Sheriff Ronnie Wardrip says 23-year-old Christopher Melton was arrested Sunday night near Lancaster.
The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/11rdntF) reports that deputies received a call about a car parked in a church parking lot, and when they arrived, two men got out of the car and ran.
Wardrip says Melton was caught but 21-year-old Tyler Roberts remains on the loose.
Melton was serving a six-year sentence for theft and fleeing police. He would have been eligible for parole in April.
Roberts was serving a 10-year sentence for burglary, theft, arson and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
He would have been eligible for parole in October 2013.
