An update on the story of the manhunt for the three fugitives, two escaped prisoners and an alleged woman accomplice, being sought in the Yellowstone National Park region — one of the escaped felons was captured.

That means two of the three felons who escaped from a private prison facility in Arizona have been captured. One remains free along with a Mesa woman. The escapees are suspected in the killings last week of an Oklahoma couple.

The Associated Press reports:

PHOENIX (AP) - Federal agents on Monday captured one of the two convicted killers who escaped from an Arizona prison in Wyoming,and were still searching for the other inmate and a suspected accomplice.

Tracy Province was arrested with a handgun in northwest Wyoming, about 60 miles outside of Yellowstone National Park, said David Gonzales, the U.S. Marshal for Arizona.

The other inmate, John McCluskey, as well as suspected accomplice Casslyn Welch, were still on the lam.

"They consider themselves as Bonnie and Clyde," Gonzales said."This is very, very serious business."
