Then the two escapees, wanted for murder, fled on foot toward homes.

Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones emphasized that the report of local whereabouts was unconfirmed with no eyewitnesses, but all law enforcement agencies in the region are staying abreast of any developments in the manhunt. The inmates took the couples' Jeep and left, but after about 15 minutes, the man freed himself and called the sheriff's office, Swing said. Each had served the department for several years.

That's when authorities say Dubose and Rowe overpowered and killed two corrections officers on a prison transport bus near Eatonton, Ga.

Nathan Deal confirmed the capture of Donnie Rowe, 43, and Ricky DuBose, 24, via Twitter. Earlier that day, the two men had stormed into an elderly couple's home, put guns to their heads and tied them up with a belt, authorities say.

When the Georgia sheriff learned of the pursuit and later capture, he said, "I was extremely fearful for law enforcement officers". "If that doesn't make you believe in Jesus Christ, I don't know what does". They still had the slain officers guns. Moments later, he saw them climb over his fence and approach his home, where he was alone with his little girl. As he began to back up, the inmates ran towards him waving their shirts in the air.

Law enforcement officials in Shelbyville, Tenn., where the arrests were made should be credited for their quick actions and getting these stone-cold killers off the street.

The prisoners allegedly breached a protective gate on the bus to reach the officers at the front of the bus, before disarming and killing them both, the sheriff's office said.

"They told them they would probably be dead in 24 hours and they didn't have anything to lose", Swing said.

Goodwin said the men surrendered after they were approached. The couple who live there spent the next three hours tied up while the fugitives ate their beef stew and pilfered their valuables.

The man and woman were threatened during the ordeal, Swing said.

News 2 has learned the suspects tied up a man inside the home and spent about three hours there, even eating before stealing the couple's vehicle and leaving. They're in a black Jeep Cherokee Trailblazer.

Constand initially settled the case with a civil suit in 2006, having waited a year to report the alleged assault to the police. They said Constand's initial statements to police were full of inconsistencies that undermine the truthfulness of her story.

"It's alright. You survived", the man tells his wife.

Authorities were vigilant and did a good job of spreading the word about the escapees. "They weren't injured but I can assure you that they were traumatized by these hoodlums coming into their home". Sills said investigators were trying to determine how the killers got out of the inmate cage and into the driver's compartment.

The pair were captured in Rutherford County about 250 miles from Madison, Georgia, where they allegedly stole a pickup truck.

The chase ended with a crash near the community of Christiana, Tennessee.

"Our hope is that they will be located and apprehended without further injury to anyone", Jones said.

He and a neighbor held them at gunpoint until authorities arrived.

He says more than 45 police officers were there within minutes, and he says "I can not tell you how grateful I was to see them arrive".

"It's true bravery is what's caused us to be able to stand here before you tonight and talk about a successful capture instead of a tragic incident", he said.

". They took my vehicle".

The two men were cellmates and friends in prison, and may have planned their escape; however, the bus ride Tuesday morning was unscheduled, officials said.
