FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado authorities say they arrested a man accused of escaping from a Tennessee jail with the help of his wife, who was also taken into custody.
The Larimer County Sheriff's office says 42-year-old William Othel Neace and 37-year-old Lorrie Ann Neace did not resist and were arrested without incident in Fort Collins on Friday. They are being held without bail pending extradition.
The sheriff's office says William Neace was serving time at the Crockett County jail in Tennessee for a parole violation when he allegedly escaped on Sept. 2. Authorities describe him as an armed career criminal.
