MINNEAPOLIS, Kan. (AP) _ The third of four inmates who escaped in April 2012 from a north-central Kansas jail was sentenced to 11 more years in prison.

The Kansas Attorney General's Office says 24-year-old Alberto Barraza-Lujan was sentenced Tuesday for aggravated escape from custody. He'll serve the sentence after finishing a sentence of 11 years and four months for previous convictions.

Barraza-Lujan and three others escaped from the Ottawa County jail in Minneapolis. They were being housed at the county jail to relieve overcrowding at the state prison.

Barraza-Lujan was serving time for attempted aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer in 2011. He was recaptured in Ottawa County shortly after the escape.

Two other defendants have been sentenced and the third is awaiting sentencing.
