2 Escapees From Correctional Center Caught

CREATED Jul 12, 2014

NORTONVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police said two men who escaped from the Keeton Correctional Center in Paducah have been caught.

State police said the two escapees, Michael Houston and Joshua Barber, were taken into custody without incident Saturday.

Police said the Hopkins County sheriff's office received a tip that the two were staying at a residence in the Nortonville community. Sheriff's deputies and state police troopers converged on the residence and found both men in the back yard.

Police said both have been charged with second-degree escape and are being held in the Hopkins County Detention Center.

Two other men who escaped from the Keeton Correctional Center were captured Thursday night near Henderson.
