Texas Death Row Escapee Captured In Louisiana

The U.S. Marshals Service says it has captured escaped Texas death row inmate Charles Victor Thompson. A spokeswoman for the U.S. Marshals Service says Thompson is in custody after being captured in Shreveport, LA. Authorities had been searching for Johnson since he fled the Harris County Jail late last Thursday, using a smuggled set of clothes and a fake identification badge to get past the guards. Thompson was convicted in 1999 for the shooting death of his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.
