(Newser) – Back in custody: Two escaped inmates described as "dangerous beyond description" have been captured in Tennessee. Donnie Russell Rowe, 42, and Ricky Dubose, 24, were caught after a car chase, reports the AP. The men escaped from a prison transport van Tuesday morning southeast of Atlanta after authorities say they overpowered officers Christopher Monica and Curtis Billue, both of whom were shot to death. They carjacked a driver who stopped at the scene, and stole at least one more vehicle while on the run, police say.

Authorities had offered a reward of $130,000 for information leading to their capture. It wasn't immediately clear how police tracked them down. (Read more fugitives stories.)
