FOX 54 has learned that the Muscogee County inmate who walked off of a work detail earlier this week has been captured.

Muscogee County Prison Warden Dwight Hamrick said Williams was captured Wednesday in at his wife's home in Atlanta.

He was resisting arrest at the time the fugitive squad tried to apprehend him. Williams is now charged with assaulting an officer, resisting arrest and escape.

His wife will be charged with aiding and abetting a fugitive.

He now faces up to 20 years in prison along with the four he has left on his original sentence.
