2 Families in Tenn. Will Split Reward Money For Ga. Inmates Capture

Authorities in Tennessee discussed the circumstances leading to the capture Thursday evening of two Georgia prison escapees accused of killing two corrections officers. The arrests of Ricky Dubose and Donnie Rowe comes after a three-day massive manhunt.

Two Tennessee families will be splitting $20,000 in reward money for the capture of two escaped Ga. inmates last week.

"After a thorough review of the information presented, a decision was made to split (50/50) $20,000 between two Tennessee civilian households. Today, that reward was dispensed," according to information released by the GBI Friday.

During the three-day manhunt for prison escapees Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose, the reward for their capture was as high as $130,000.
