Two men who escaped from Lexington's Blackburn Correctional Complex were captured Monday night.

Cody Allison, 23, and Paul Nance, 32, were arrested by the Hopkins County Sheriff's Department more than 24 hours after they escaped from the minimum-security prison on Sunday afternoon, according to Kentucky State Police. They had been told that the men had returned to Allison's residence.

Both men are from Madisonville. They were arrested without incident, the release said.
