October 14, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

A murder suspect who escaped from jail surrendered after three days on the run, a state police spokesman said.

Hugo Selenski, who escaped from the Luzerne County Correctional Facility by climbing down a 60-foot line of knotted bedsheets, was taken into custody at his home, said State Police Trooper Tom Kelly.

Police had gone there after the escape but were refused entry by Selenski's girlfriend, according to Kelly. About 45 minutes after they left, Selenski's attorney called to arrange the surrender, Kelly said.
