TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Digital signs on Arizona highways alert the public that a married couple suspected in a Tucson killing remained at large after overpowering two guards and escaping while being extradited from New York to Arizona.
Tucson police said 56-year-old Blane Barksdale and 59-year-old wife Susan Barksdale escaped Monday evening in Blanding, Utah.
Authorities say the Barksdales may be driving through Arizona, are considered armed and dangerous and were last seen in a Red GMC pickup with the Arizona license plate of 127XTY.
The highway signs displayed Wednesday mention the vehicle and advise anybody seeing the couple to call 911.
They face charges of first-degree murder and other crimes in the April slaying of 72-year-old Frank Bligh in Tucson. They were arrested May 24 in Henrietta, New York.
