One of two prisoners that escaped late Sunday evening or early Monday morning from the Mississippi State Penitentiary in Parchman was apprehended in Phillips County sometime Tuesday.

The Phillips County Sheriff's Office confirmed to WREG-TV Channel 3 out of Memphis, Tennessee that James R. Sanders, 41, was captured in Phillips County but did not elaborate on the details regarding the arrest or where in the county the arrest was made.

Sanders was reportedly serving a life sentence for a murder that occurred in Lafayette County, Mississippi back in 1998.

Parchman officials reported that the other escaped inmate, Ryan Young was still at large at press time. Young was serving a 40-year sentence for the burglary of a vehicle, burglary of a residence, grand larceny and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in Claiborne County, Mississippi.

No details were released as to how the prisoners escaped.

Following the pair's escape, Crime Stoppers offered a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the recapture of the two escaped prisoners from the penitentiary. The reward was an increase from the $2,500 reward that was offered earlier Tuesday.

Law enforcement officials have not announced as to whether or not someone will receive a reward for Sanders' capture.
