Escaped Inmates Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker Back in Florida Department of Corrections' Custody

Two convicted murderers captured last weekend after being released mistakenly from prison are back in the custody of the Florida Department of Corrections.

A spokesman for the Orange County Jail in Orlando where they were being held says the transfer was made Wednesday afternoon. He provided no other details.

Charles Walker and Joseph Jenkins were captured last weekend at a Panama City motel.

Authorities say they used forged court orders to get them released from the Franklin Correctional Institution in the Panhandle.

The forged orders cut their prison sentences from life to 15 years.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating who wrote the phony court documents and how they got into the judicial system.

Both men were convicted of murders in the Orlando area.
