An inmate who walked off a mowing detail in Tiptonville, Tennessee is back in custody, according to the Tennessee Department of Corrections. 

The department says law enforcement found the inmate, Richard Roberts, and a woman, Rachel McMillan, at a lodge in Murray Wednesday afternoon. McMillan — from Franklin, Kentucky — is accused of picking up Roberts and taking him to Murray. 

Roberts and McMillan are awaiting extradition in the Calloway County Jail. Roberts has been charged with felony escape. McMillan was charged with facilitation of an escape. 

Murray police assisted the U.S. Marshal's Service in arresting Roberts around 6 p.m. Wednesday.
