BOONEVILLE â€” A convicted killer who escaped an Arkansas prison turned himself into authorities Thursday after about three months on the run.
Timothy Buffington escaped June 21 from the Pine Bluff Unit after stealing a shotgun from a house on the prison grounds where he'd been performing janitorial work. He was found more than 150 miles away Thursday â€” in the same area where he was convicted of first-degree murder for the 1998 shooting death of his ex-wife, Rhonda Combs.
