MINNEAPOLIS, Kan. (AP) -- A convicted murderer has been sentenced to more than 10 additional years in prison for escaping from a north-central Kansas county jail in 2012.
Twenty-four-year-old Santos Carrera-Morales was one of four inmates who broke out of the Ottawa County jail, where they had been placed to ease overcrowding in a state prison.
All four were eventually recaptured.
The Kansas attorney general's office says a judge on Tuesday sentenced Carrera-Morales to an additional 10 years and eight months in state custody. He was already serving time for two counts of first-degree murder in a 2007 Wichita gang shooting.
The other three escapees were sentenced earlier for the breakout.
The escapes prompted the Kansas Corrections Department to move more than a dozen state inmates from the county jail to the state prison in Ellsworth.
