Escaped killer recaptured

— STRINGTOWN (AP) — Oklahoma prison officials say a convicted killer who escaped the Mack Alford Correctional Facility in Stringtown has been recaptured in Hugo.

Prison spokeswoman Cindy Lowe said Jason Bales, 29, was recaptured about 10:30 a.m. Sunday. Lowe said she had no other details about the capture.

Bales was reported missing Monday from the prison, where he was serving life without parole for the 2006 killing of his girlfriend's mother, Stepheny Glass. Authorities say Glass was strangled. Her body was doused with acid and buried in a shallow grave in Oklahoma City.

Prison officials say they are still investigating how Bales escaped.
