Three escapees from Avoyelles Parish have been captured in Miami.

Authorities say Quentin M. Truehill, Kentrell F. Johnson, and Peter Hughes escaped last month from the Avoyelles Parish Detention Center after forcing a guard at knifepoint to open a door.

Truehill was serving a 30-year sentence for manslaughter and has a conviction of armed robbery from 2009 in Rapides Parish.

Hughes was serving a four-year sentence for unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.

Johnson was serving a 10-year sentence for a parole violation and armed robbery charges.
