GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - An Arizona alleged escapee captured in western Colorado has been charged with three counts of attempted murder stemming from a shootout during his capture.
Garfield County prosecutors also charged 36-year-old Daniel Renwick with vehicular eluding and possession of a weapon by a previous offender. Renwick read a brief statement in court Wednesday in which he said he was invoking his right to remain silent.
Renwick is one of three convicted murderers who escaped from a privately run prison in Arizona July 30. His next hearing is on Sept. 28. Police say Renwick fired shots at them during a chase in and near the town of Rifle Aug. 1. Police captured Renwick after ramming his SUV with their car.
