2 inmates flee East Texas jail including man charged with capital murder in 2011 slaying

Two prisoners, including one awaiting trial on a capital murder charge, have broken out of an East Texas jail.

The Hopkins County Sheriff's Office says Brian Allen Tucker of Sulphur Springs and John Marlin King of Cumby escaped from the Hopkins County Jail on Tuesday morning.

Dispatcher Beth Renfro says both apparently fled through a recreation yard used by female inmates at the jail in Sulphur Springs, about 75 miles northeast of Dallas.

Tucker was being held on $1 million bond in the 2011 death of Bobby Riley of Mahoney. Riley was strangled in his home and some music instruments and firearms had been stolen.

King was being held on an evading arrest charge. Further details weren't immediately available.

Schools in Sulphur Springs have been locked down.
