UPDATE: DELTA COUNTY (KYTX) - According to Delta County Chief Deputy Don Willingham, 62-year-old Charles Richard Ensey was arrested for aiding John Marlin King and Brian Allen Tucker after escaping jail on Tuesday. Ensey is being held for hindering a fugitive; 2 counts of 3rd degree felony.

No bond has been set.

Ensey's father was released after investigation revealed he did not play a part in helping the escaped men according to officials.

 


SULPHUR SPRINGS (KYTX) - One of the two captured inmates has been transferred from the Hopkins County Jail.

 

According to Sgt. Brad Cummings, John Marlin King has been transferred to Texas Department of Criminal Justice Gurney Unit in Anderson County.

Both King and Brian Allen Tucker were arraigned at the Hopkins County Jail on escape charges in addition to their prior charges just before 9 a.m. Friday by Sulphur Spring Justice of the Peace Pct. 1 Judge Yvonee King.

On Monday, April 1, 2013, King was sentenced to 40 years in prison for burglary and drug charges.

Prior to escaping jail on Tuesday, Tucker was awaiting a June trial for capital murder and theft charges. Tucker is expected to be transfered back to Hopkins County to stand trial once a bench warrant is issued.

King's bond has been set for $570,000 and Tucker's bond is set for $1.5 million. Due to both men previously violating their paroles, neither will be able to bond out according to Sgt. Cummings.

Deputies at the jail tell KYTX CBS 19 that inmates are not normally arraigned with shackles on but due to the seriousness of their crime both Tucker and King were.
