TUCKER, Ark. (AP) - Authorities continue to search for a convicted killer who escaped from a maximum-security prison in Arkansas.
The search continues Tuesday for 33-year-old Curtis Reese Jr., who is serving a 40-year sentence at the Tucker Unit. Correction department spokeswoman Shea Wilson says Reese and another inmate escaped the prison on Monday by hiding in an empty water tank atop an 18-wheel tractor-trailer.
The other inmate, 40-year-old James B. Ryan, was back in custody Monday afternoon.
Reese was convicted of 2 counts of first-degree murder in Saline County in the 1997 deaths of Eric Ogden and Lance Kelloms.
Reese is white, has green eyes, is about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 176 pounds. He also has tattoos of swastikas and skulls.
