Arkansas Fugitive Captured In Claiborne Parish

A prison escapee has been captured after more than two years on the run.

Thirty-three-year-old Yul McGee was arrested Thursday in the Claiborne Parish town of Haynesville at his girlfriend's house. McGee is originally from the Haynesville area.

Police also arrested the girlfriend, 21-year-old Shanterri Woods, and McGee's aunt, 48-year-old Velardi McGee, for harboring a fugitive.

McGee was serving a 40-year prison sentence on drug charges prior to his escape from a work release program in January 2006 at the Hempstead County Jail in Hope.

Haynesville police set up surveillance at Woods' home after receiving a tip about McGee's whereabouts.
