MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) - Authorities in Muskogee are searching for a murder suspect who escaped from the county jail.

Jail administrators say 24-year-old Paul Newberry escaped with another inmate from the Muskogee County jail late Sunday. Authorities say the pair made it onto the jail’s roof after breaking a window, then jumped off and ran away.

The second inmate, 36-year-old Raymond Noriega, was captured in Muskogee shortly after the escape.

Newberry is accused in the July killing of 88-year-old rancher Charley Kirk. He’s charged with first-degree murder with deliberate intent, robbery and burglary, among other charges.

Authorities say Newberry was last seen wearing a dark-colored, long-sleeve sweatshirt and gray shorts.
