Panama City, FL - Two Florida inmates who were mistakenly released from prison, have been captured.
Charles Walker and Joseph Jenkins were arrested at a hotel in Panama City, Florida. They were taken into custody without incident.
Officials say the convicted murders forged paperwork to spring themselves. Both men were serving life sentences without the possibility of parole.
Florida law enforcement coordinated with US Marshalls to locate and capture the escaped inmates.
