Prison escapee Merl Farris, who escaped from the Central Missouri Correctional Center near Jefferson City earlier this week, has been caught near the Morgan and Camden County line, not far from the home of one of his relatives. Farris was picked up early Saturday afternoon. Farris is being returned to the Central Missouri facility, where he’ll be transferred to a maximum security prison. Authorities have yet to determine the charges that will be filed in connection with the escape.
