LITTLE ROCK, AR - State Police searching for a pair of missing men wanted in the wounding of a state trooper have found one of the fugitives, and the woman who they wanted to question the fugitives about.

Troopers are still looking for the other fugitive involved in last week's Ozark Mountain standoff near Allread.  They also are looking for the woman's husband.

State Police spokesman Bill Sadler says Mark Holsombach and Ann Throneberry were captured this afternoon in southern Newton County.  Police were taking them to the Newton County jail in Jasper.

Holsombach was wanted on a charge of attempted capital murder in the shooting of a state police trooper.  Police also wanted to question him in the disappearance weeks ago of Throneberry and her husband, Ted Throneberry.  The couple lived near Allread.

Authorities began a weeklong search for Holsombach and William J. Frazier in the Ozark Mountains in Van Buren County after they went to the two men's cabin near Allread on March 22 to serve three warrants.

They also wanted to ask them about their neighbors, the Throneberrys.  Instead, shots were fired and State Police Corporal Charlie Edmonson was wounded.
