TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Three of the four inmates who broke out of a north-central Kansas jail in April will be back in court in the coming weeks on new charges related to their escape.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt has charged three of the inmates with aggravated escape from custody and aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer.

The three are Santos M. Carrera-Morales, 22; Drew Edward Wade, 23; and Alberto Jon Barraza-Lujan, 23. The three have court dates scheduled in August and September to hear the new charges.

Schmidt's spokesman, Jeff Wagaman, says Monday that charges are still being reviewed on a fourth inmate, 22-year-old Eric James.

The inmates were being housed in the Ottawa County Jail in effort to relieve overcrowding at the Ellsworth Correctional Facility.
