Authorities say two men who escaped a rural Alabama prison have
been arrested with two suspected accomplices after a nearly 14-hour
standoff more than 1,200 miles away in North Dakota.

A federal law enforcement official who requested anonymity
because he wasn't authorized to discuss the matter said the four
were taken into custody around 2:25 p.m. Saturday.

Joshua Southwick, 26, and Ashton Mink, 22, escaped from the
Perry County Detention Center in Uniontown, Ala., on May 25.

Authorities say Angela Diana Mink, 25, and Jacquelin Rae Kennamer
Mink, 25, Mink's sister and wife, helped the men escape.

The official said Southwick and Angela Mink surrendered to
authorities.

Ashton and Jacquelin Mink both received gunshot wounds as they tried to escape and were being treated at a hospital.
