CORINTH, MS (AP) - A Tennessee man is back behind bars after escaping from the Alcorn County Jail for the second time this year.

Deputies say 27-year-old Brian Lamar Knight was arrested Sunday at a motel in Jackson, TN.

Alcorn County Sheriff's Department Investigator Jerry Rogers says that Knight was discovered missing from his cell around 9 a.m. Saturday.

Rogers said it appears Knight escaped through a hole in the wall.

Authorities say Knight was 1 of 3 men who escaped from the county jail in January by cutting a hole through a fence. He and the other two suspects were later arrested in Little Rock, Ark.
