CLINTON, La. (AP) - East Feliciana Parish sheriff's deputies and state police arrested a prison work-release escapee at a Baton Rouge motel.
40-year-old Frankie New left his job site at Elam's Auto Service and Body Shop in Jackson on Monday.
Sheriff's Detective Don McKey said deputies and troopers arrested the fugitive about 10:20 p.m. Tuesday.
He was booked in the East Feliciana Parish Jail with simple escape. New, serving a state prison term for simple burglary, had been scheduled for release in March 2014.
Deputies also arrested 29-year-old Sheryl Millsaps, of New Iberia, and booked her with principal to simple escape.
It was unclear whether Millsaps has an attorney.
