COLUMBUS, GA – A pair of prison inmates have been indicted on escape charges after authorities accused them of running away from a work detail.

Thirty-three-year-old Jason Miller and 23-year-old Michael Patterson were indicted Tuesday.

The duo are accused of running from a work detail more than 4 months ago.

The inmates were found a day later in a wooded area near Williams Road and Interstate 185.

Patterson had been in prison since Feb. 26, 2008 serving time for two counts of burglary, and Miller had been in prison since January of last year serving time for armed robbery.
