LEBANON, Pa. (AP) _ Two murder suspects were recaptured Sunday afternoon, a day after they made a daylight escape from the Lebanon County Prison.

Nathaniel Negron-Gonzalez, 22, and Jose Rivera-Encanasion, 23, both of Lebanon, were taken into custody without incident at a city apartment, police said.

Two women, one a former girlfriend of one of the inmates, will be charged with harboring fugitives, state Trooper Ray Albert said. The inmates were to be arraigned on escape charges and returned to the prison.

The men escaped Saturday afternoon by climbing a light pole to the prison roof, squeezing through razor wire and jumping to the ground, officials said.

The men had been jailed on charges they killed a man by setting him on fire last August.
