Inmate missing since 1999 surrenders in Oklahoma

Authorities say a murder suspect who's been on the run since a brazen escape from an Oklahoma jail with eight other inmates in 1999 has turned himself in.

David Lee Kemp was the only inmate to elude capture after escaping the Comanche County jail on March 11, 1999.  He was awaiting trial on two first-degree murder counts in the killings of his ex-wife and her boyfriend. Authorities say the inmates escaped after overpowering a guard using a large barbecue fork.

Comanche County Sheriff Kenny Stradley says Kemp, 43, was arrested early Friday. Comanche County is 80 miles southwest of Oklahoma City.

The FBI says Kemp was spotted in Las Vegas and may have visited Phoenix and Louisiana. FBI spokesman Rick Rains says Kemp turned himself in.
