Police: Convicted killer of 3 Ohio high school students back in custody after prison escape

Authorities say they have apprehended the convicted killer of three Ohio students who escaped from a prison.

Nineteen-year-old T.J. Lane escaped Thursday night with two other inmates from the prison in Lima, about 80 miles south of Toledo. One was captured quickly.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol and police in Lima said around 1: 30 a.m. Friday that Lane had been caught. No further details were available.

It was not known if the other inmate, 45-year-old Clifford E. Opperud, had been apprehended.

Lane pleaded guilty last year to shooting three students in February 2012 at Chardon High School, east of Cleveland. Prosecutors say he took a .22-caliber pistol and a knife to the school and fired 10 shots at a group of students. Lane was given three life sentences.
