On the Radar: One convict caught, one still on the loose

[cnn-video  url=""%5D

On the lam - The second of three Arizona prison escapees has been captured in Wyoming. That leaves one convict and a suspected accomplice on the loose. Convicted murderer Tracy Province walked into a church Sunday in Meeteetse, Wyoming. The Rev. Ron Kingston said Province seemed like a down-on-his luck soul. Province had been on the lam for 10 days. The convict enjoyed the 9:30 a.m. worship service, sang songs such as"Your Grace Is Enough" and shook hands with parishioners. One of those churchgoers recognized Province from news reports and called police, spurring the convict's capture Monday.

Meanwhile, a U.S. marshal warns another escapee, John McClusky, isn't expected to go down without a fight. McClusky and his fiancee reportedly had been hiding out in Yellowstone National Park, but authorities said the two have left. It's unclear in what general area they might be.

Oh chute! - A JetBlue flight attendant who shouted expletives over a plane's intercom, then allegedly released and zipped down an inflatable escape chute and left New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport was arrested at his home. Steven Slater was charged with criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and criminal tresspass. But Slater's creative way of quitting his job has earned him many fans. A Facebook page has sprung up with thousands of "friends." Some are calling for donations to cover Slater's legal expenses.

Diamond trial - The attorney for former Liberian President Charles Taylor accused Naomi Campbell's ex-agent of lying in her testimony at an international court Tuesday. The lawyer called Carole White's account of Campbell receiving "blood diamonds" from Taylor "a complete pack of lies." White has been testifying at Taylor's war crimes trial. Prosecutors allege the diamonds funded a brutal civil war in Sierra Leone. Campbell was at a 1997 dinner party in South Africa that Taylor also attended.
