Brother of Escaped Prisoner Arrested

SALINA, Kan. (AP) Police have arrested the brother of a man who briefly escaped from jail while facing sentencing for killing his girlfriend’s young son.

Saline County authorities arrested Joshua Danny Brown, 30, of Wichita Monday on a charge of obstructing apprehension or prosecution.

Brown’s brother, Antonio Brown, 29, escaped Feb. 11 from the Saline County jail. He was scheduled to be sentenced the next day on murder and child abuse charges for the October 2011 death of his girlfriend’s 14-month-old son. Brown turned himself in to Wichita police Feb. 13.

The Salina Journal reports a second man, Eric Terry, 28, of Salina, also has been arrested in Antonio Brown’s escape. The two men’s alleged roles in the escape have not been publicized.

Detective Jim Hughes says more arrests are “very possible.”
