June 14 (UPI) -- The Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced a $60,000 reward for help in capturing two escaped inmates accused of killing two correctional officers.
Authorities said Donnie Russell Rowe and Ricky Dubose overpowered Baldwin State Prison officers Sgt. Christopher Monica and Sgt. Curtis Billue on Tuesday morning after a prison bus arrived at a work detail along Georgia's Highway 16 between the towns of Eatonton and Sparta. One of the inmates disarmed the officers, shooting Monica and Billue, before escaping. Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills said Rowe and Dubose then stole a vehicle in a carjacking; the unidentified driver was not injured.
