Inmate accused of killing 2 corrections officers is 'not a monster,' family says

The cousin of one of two inmates accused of killing two Georgia corrections officers before escaping and leading authorities on a nationwide manhunt is speaking out.

The Rutherford County Sheriff's Office in Tennessee confirmed Ricky Dubose and Donnie Rowe were caught Thursday evening in Shelbyville, Tennessee.

The escapees were wanted for the killings of two corrections officers, Sgt. Chris Monica and Sgt. Curtis Billue, on a bus during prisoner transport Tuesday.

Brenda Tarver pleaded with her cousin to turn himself in hours before he and Donnie Rowe were captured Thursday night.

"The Ricky I know is nothing like what we are seeing on TV, all the tattoos, the heinous things going on.  That's not the Ricky I know," Brenda Tarver said.

Tarver said she last talked to Dubose when he visited her church in 2013.

She said he had just gotten out of jail, and told her he was "trying to do right."
