A fourth worker, wounded and left for dead, crawled to a phone and called police. Less than two hours later, police arrested two people and charged them with capital murder. One of the suspects had been fired Monday from the Popeye's Famous Fried Chicken restaurant, police Capt. Jimmie Flanagan said.

McIntosh, authorities said Sunday. Buying custom wedding rings after their escape, McIntosh and his girlfriend, Samantha D. Lopez, went to the same jewelry store three times in less than a week. Federal marshals, who were waiting for the couple on the third visit, blamed their lack of caution on love.
