DARDANELLE, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say they've recaptured three inmates who escaped from the Yell County jail.

Yell County Sheriff Bill Gilkey says the inmates overpowered a jailer Sunday afternoon and escaped from the facility. He says all three were recaptured late Sunday in Dardanelle without incident.

The sheriff's office identified the escapees as Bret Cooksey, Seth Chowning and Jacqueline Stobaugh.

Authorities say the escape remains under investigation and that the three will likely face additional charges.
