GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - An inmate who escaped from an Arizona prison is due in court on charges stemming from a shootout during his capture in western Colorado.
Thirty-six-year-old Daniel Renwick in scheduled to enter a plea Tuesday in Glenwood Springs. Renwick is one of three convicts who escaped on July 30 from a privately run prison in Kingman, Ariz. He was serving a sentence for a second-degree murder conviction.
Police said Renwick fired shots at them during a three-mile chase Aug. 1 in and near the town of Rifle, about 180 miles west of Denver. Officers said they rammed his SUV with a patrol car.
Renwick also faces a charge of being a fugitive. A hearing in October was postponed.
