Authorities: Man who escaped Missouri jail back in custody
BENTON (AP) — A man who escaped from a southeast Missouri jail is back in custody.
The Sikeston Standard Democrat reports that 31-year-old Joshua Musgrove was found Sunday after the Scott County Sheriff's Department received a tip. He was taken into custody without incident.
Musgrove was being held on charges of first-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon. Authorities say that after a court appearance on Thursday, Musgrove fled from the jail through a service gate that had been inadvertently left unsecured.
