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

Ricky Wedgeworth and Darian Pierce arrived at LSP headquarters just before noon.  The two face escape charges after stole a vehicle and left a State Police barracks on March 4.

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.

News 2's Stephanie Ryan will have more on the inmates' return and the next step in their case tonight on News 2 at 6.
