VERNON, TX -- After nearly eight days on the run, an escaped inmate from Murray County is back behind bars.

Deputies say Roger Goodall, 52, of Sulphur, was captured around midnight at a motel in Vernon, Tex., by officials with the U.S. Marshals and Texas Rangers. The town is 50 miles west of Wichita Falls.

Goodall was recently sentenced to 8 years in prison, and was serving as a trusty when he escaped during a shift change on May 23, officials said.

Deputies are now waiting for him to be extradited back to Sulphur.
