Escaped Inmate Returns to Clovis

An escaped inmate suspected of killing is back in the Curry County Detention Center.

District Attorney Matthew Chandler says he got word this morning McClendon had been transported from the Randall County Jail to the detention center late yesterday afternoon.

McClendon is facing outstanding warrants for escape and homicide charges. He had been on the loose since late August when he and seven others escaped through the roof of the Curry County Jail.
