Reward money dispersed for Ga. inmates' capture

Escaped inmates Ricky Dubose and Donnie Rowe appeared in Putnam County Superior Court on Wednesday morning. The judge denied them bond and prosecutors said they expect to seek the death penalty. The men are accused of killing two corrections officers June

Two Tennessee families will be splitting $20,000 in reward money for the capture of two escaped Ga. inmates last week.

"After a thorough review of the information presented, a decision was made to split (50/50) $20,000 between two Tennessee civilian households. Today, that reward was dispensed," according to information released by the GBI Friday.

During the three-day manhunt for prison escapees Donnie Rowe and Ricky Dubose, the reward for their capture was as high as $130,000.

According to the GBI, the $20,000 given out Friday is only "the initial stage of the total reward being dispersed and all stakeholders involved continue discussions to determine how the remaining sum will be dispersed."
