MONTREAL (AP) - Tight security surrounded the arraignment of three murder suspects who police say used a helicopter to break out of a Quebec prison. The men were arrested early Sunday while hiding out in a luxury condo.

Yves Denis, 35, Denis Lefebvre, 53, and Serge Pomerleau, 49, looked weary in the prisoners' dock on Monday as they were charged with escaping lawful custody and prison breach.

Quebec Superior Court Justice Louis Dionne also suspended two earlier rulings that eased the men's conditions behind bars before their brazen escape on June 7.

Dionne took away computer privileges for Pomerleau and revoked permission allowing the men to circulate together in the prison yard.

The men were facing murder and gangsterism charges before the jailbreak. They were found in a condo in Old Montreal at 1:30 a.m. on Sunday.
