Arizona fugitive inmate charged in Colo. court

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – An inmate who escaped from an Arizona prison is due in court to face arraignment on charges stemming from a shootout during his capture in western Colorado.

Thirty-six-year-old Daniel Renwick faces three counts of attempted murder, vehicular eluding and possession of a weapon by a previous offender when he appears in court Tuesday in Glenwood Springs . Renwick is one of three convicts who escaped on July 30 from a privately run prison in Kingman, Ariz.

Police said Renwick, who was in prison for a second-degree murder conviction, fired shots at them during a three-mile chase Aug. 1 in and near the town of Rifle, about 180 miles west of Denver. Officers said they rammed his SUV with a patrol car.

Renwick also faces a charge of being a fugitive.
