 SULPHUR SPRINGS, Texas (AP) - A capital murder suspect and a convicted drug offender who escaped an East Texas jail have been apprehended.
     Authorities say Brian Allen Tucker and John Marlin King were caught Thursday in the town of Cooper, about 20 miles from the jail.
     Hopkins County sheriff's Deputy Alvin Jordan says the inmates were being returned to the Hopkins County Jail in Sulphur Springs. He had no other details.
     The inmates fled the jail Tuesday by scaling a fence or slipping through a gap in a perimeter fence the morning of April 2. Sulphur Springs is about 75 miles northeast of Dallas.
     Tucker faces trial in the 2011 slaying of Bobby Riley of Mahoney.
     King pleaded guilty in March to drug possession as a habitual offender. He was sentenced to 40 years.
