Authorities quiet on escaped fugitives wanted for murder in Arizona

Authorities quiet on escaped fugitives wanted for murder in Arizona The Tucson couple accused of murder is still on the run tonight after attacking and overpowering two security guards while being transported one week ago today. And now, the U.S. Marshals Service has released more images of the couple in hopes someone will recognize them. They are stills from a surveillance camera—but they are not recent—so not taken while on the run. But the FBI hopes they’ll give the public a new look at the couple. The two escaped in Blanding, Utah, by overpowering a security guard from a transportation company taking the couple back to Tucson, where the couple faces murder charges in the death of a 72-year-old man.

Husband-and-wife murder suspects who overpowered two guards to escape custody have been captured after more than two weeks on the run, the U.S. Marshals Service said late Wednesday.

Blane Barksdale, 56, and Susan Barksdale, 59, escaped in Utah on Aug. 26 while being extradited from upstate New York to Arizona. The Barksdales are charged in the Arizona murder of Frank Bligh, 72, whose body has not been found. His Tucson home was set on fire April 16, and authorities have said the blaze was started to cover up the killing.

The Barksdales were arrested in upstate New York in May following a nationwide manhunt, officials said.
