HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) -

Two men who escaped from a correctional center in Paducah have been caught in Hopkins County.

Kentucky State Police say they received a tip that Michael Houston and Joshua Barber were staying at a home in Nortonville.

Authorities went to that home Saturday morning and found both men in the back yard.

They were taken into custody without incident.

Police say both have been charged with second-degree escape and are being held in the Hopkins County Detention Center.

Two other men who escaped from the Keeton Correctional Center were captured Thursday night near Henderson.
