TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is announcing more arrests in the case of two murderers who used forged documents to get out of prison.

The department is holding a press conference Thursday to provide details of the arrests.

The agency has been investigating who helped Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker escape from a Franklin County prison and who later helped them hide from authorities when the mistaken release was discovered.

Jenkins and Walker were let out of the prison on Sept. 27 and Oct. 8, respectively, because of fake paperwork that reduced their life sentences to 15 years.

They were captured Oct. 19 in a Panama City Beach motel.
