LAFAYETTE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Two inmates who escaped the St. Mary Parish jail are back in custody.

Lafayette Police, investigating a trespassing complaint, arrested 28-year-old Christopher Horton and 36-year-old Joshua Folks at 11 a.m. Tuesday. St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Traci Landry tells The Advocate the men surrendered without a fight.

Authorities had considered the men extremely dangerous. The men were noticed missing from the parish jail early Monday.

Horton, of Bayou Vista, was in jail for second-degree murder and arson, while Folks, of Franklin, was serving a sentence for theft and aggravated escape. Authorities say they'll also face charges of simple escape and criminal damage to property.
