PARKER, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities have recaptured a homicide suspect who escaped two days ago from the Colorado River Indian Tribes jail in western Arizona.

FBI officials announced Tuesday afternoon that 25-year-old Mickey Anderson was back in custody, but further details about his capture weren't immediately released.

La Paz County authorities say Anderson was among three men who escaped Sunday by assaulting a detention officer at the jail in Parker. The other two escapees were apprehended within hours.

A La Paz County Sheriff's spokesman referred questions about the homicide case to a jail police official, Capt. Stuart Harper, who didn't immediately return a call Tuesday evening.

The FBI says Anderson also was being held in connection with a robbery on the reservation.
