WINONA — A murder suspect who escaped from a southeast Missouri jail while watching a fireworks show is back in custody.
Winona Police Chief Alonzo Bradwell says 35-year-old Jason McClurg of Winona was arrested without incident Sunday evening at a camper trailer near his hometown.
McClurg ran away from the Shannon County jail in Eminence on Friday night when he and other inmates were taken outside to watch a fireworks show.
McClurg is charged with first-degree murder in the May death of his wife, 32-year-old Stephanie McClurg. Prosecutors allege he put prescription drugs in Kool-Aid he gave to her.
