2 men who escaped from Blackburn caught

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Two inmates who escaped from the Blackburn Correction Complex nearly a week ago have been caught.

Officials say Willard Wilson, 48, and Donnie Johnson, 38, were caught in Cincinnati today after being reported missing shortly before 9 pm Sunday.

A 9-1-1 call this afternoon led police officers to a home on Winton Road.

The men were found in a car, stolen from somewhere in Cincinnati.

Wilson was serving 22 years for burglary, while Johnson was serving 13 years for robbery.

Wilson also had a previous escape charge from 2005.

We're told the men surrendered peacefully.
