BATON ROUGE- Two former trusties who escaped from Baton Rouge and were caught in Tennessee are now back in State Police custody in Louisiana.

They were arrested on March 14 by Memphis Police after a high-speed chase. The two are also accused of killing a traveling salesman from Ohio while on the run.
