MEMPHIS, TN (WAFB) - The two men who escaped from custody in Louisiana and are suspected in the death of a man while on the run have been captured and will possibly face charges in four different states.
Ricky Wedgeworth, 36, and Darian "Drake" Pierce, 33, were caught in Memphis, TN, where they remain for the time being.
Authorities said the pair may be in Tennessee for a while, as they try to figure out what the two men will be charged with.
Police officials said they have a long list of crimes, which could include murder, the suspects will face in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee.
A flock of police cars that had been following the two from DeSoto County, TN into Memphis surrounded the stolen truck they were in shortly after the inmates crashed.
Investigators added Pierce swung at an officer with a metal pipe before he and Wedgeworth were arrested.
Police said the pair stole the government pickup after tying up two workers at a park in Jackson, TN.
They were followed for about 90 miles before crashing.
Wedgeworth and Pierce walked away from the Louisiana State Police Headquarters on March 4.
They allegedly carjacked and killed an Ohio man in Vicksburg, MS while they were on the run.
The body of David Michael Cupps of Sunbury, OH was found in Bessemer, AL.
