ALABAMA ESCAPEE CONVICTED OF MURDER SURRENDERS

CULLMAN, Ala. (AP) – An Alabama inmate convicted of murder has been recaptured after a standoff.

The Department of Corrections says 43-year-old Daniel Miner surrendered to authorities late Thursday.

He had been on the loose since fleeing from a work release center in Childersburg last Saturday.

Miner was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1994 after being convicted of murder in Marshall County.

He was convicted of killing a man during a robbery in 1993. The U.S. Marshals Service had offered a $10,000 reward for Miner, but it’s unclear whether the money played a role in his arrest.

The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office says Miner gave up after a standoff.
