LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Officials say both inmates who walked away from Blackburn Correctional Complex in Fayette County are back in custody.
 
   Garrard County Sheriff Ronnie Wardrop told the Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/VgM6UH ) that 21-year-old Tyler Roberts was apprehended Monday morning walking along a road south of Lancaster. The other man, 23-year-old Christopher W. Melton, was arrested Sunday night in Garrard County after deputies received a call about a car parked in a church parking lot.
 
   The two were confirmed missing Saturday night.
 
   Melton was serving six years for theft and fleeing police, and Roberts was serving 10 years for burglary, theft, arson and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
