Escaped murderer David Sweat, who was shot after over 20 days on the run, was once again incarcerated in a New York maximum security prison Sunday.

Sweat was released from Albany Medical Center early Sunday, the New York State Department of Corrections told the Associated Press.

He was taken to the Five Points Correctional Facility in Romulus. The prison is about 200 miles west of Albany.

Officials say Sweat initially will be held in the infirmary 

He will then move to a single cell in a 23-hour confinement unit, and be held under suicide watch, the New York Post reported.

Sweat and Richard Matt had escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, near the Canadian border, in early June.

Matt was killed June 26. Sweat was captured June 28 after being shot by a trooper as he fled through a field near the Canadian border.

A representative for the John O. Roth Funeral Home in western New York State told the Post that the "final disposition" of Matt's body had taken place, upon the wishes of Matt's son, Nicholas Harris.

Allen did not specify whether Matt had been cremated or buried.
