The Nation : Murder Suspects Captured

Police in Jacksonville, Fla., acting on a tip, captured two men once described as black-power advocates and wanted in the 1968 slayings of two Tennessee police officers, authorities said. Charles Lee Herron, who was on the FBI's most wanted list longer than anyone else, surrendered peacefully at dawn as he walked into a police stakeout after the arrest the day before of his companion, prison escapee William Garrin Allen II. Allen, 40, escaped from a Tennessee prison after serving six years of a 99-year sentence in the slayings of the officers. Herron, 49, was never tried in the deaths.
