ATOKA, Okla. (AP) – Authorities have recaptured an inmate who escaped an Oklahoma prison and have issued a warrant for the arrest of the inmate’s former wife.

KXII reports that Michael Courverler was found earlier this week in the home of the ex-wife – Raschale Tribout – in the Ellis County town of Fargo in western Oklahoma.

Court records show an arrest warrant for Tribout has been issued on a charge of harboring a fugitive.

Courverler disappeared after a 6:30 p.m. headcount on Thanksgiving from the Howard McLeod Correctional Center in Atoka where he was serving time for a variety of convictions that include assault and battery, grand larceny and extortion. He now faces an additional charge of escape.
