OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Two Oklahoma jail escapees, including a murder suspect, have been recaptured in Oklahoma City after escaping a county jail by using sheets tied together to climb down the outside of the building from a 12th floor cell.

Oklahoma County jail spokesman Mac Mullings said 34-year-old murder suspect Pablo Robledo was arrested on Friday afternoon in southwest Oklahoma City by city police and U.S. marshals. Mullings says the second escapee fell or jumped from about the fourth floor and was arrested by city police on Friday morning.

Jail records show that Robledo had been jailed since June 2019 on murder, assault and battery, domestic abuse, and other charges. He had pleaded not guilty.
