More charges have been filed involving two Oklahoma prison escapees, accused of going on a cross-country crime spree.

Benjamin Beck and Truman Gross escaped from the Lexington Correctional Center July 2nd. Authorities say they committed robbery, kidnapping and larceny crimes in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Arkansas after their escape.

They were captured a week later in Wisconsin.

Oklahoma prosecutors have now charged three other inmates at the Lexington prison with helping with the escape.
