Cotton County Inmate Captured

Posted: Updated:

An escaped inmate from Cotton County was caught Thursday evening, October 10, 2013.

Robert Lee Turk was captured just four miles north east of Walters by Cotton County authorities.

Sheriff Kent Simpson says the 45 year old was chased into the open by authorities.

Turk surrendered without incident.

He is being transported to Comanche county detention center because he can't go back to the same jail he escaped from.

He was behind bars facing charges that include shooting with intent to kill and felony possession of a fire arm.

Authorities say this was Turk's third escape.
