WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A convicted killer who was one of four inmates who overpowered guards and escaped from a Kansas county jail in 2012 has been found guilty of aggravated escape and battery on a corrections officer.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1eQyYTA ) reports an Ottawa County jury convicted Santos Carrera-Morales Thursday. The 24-year-old was serving time for two counts of first-degree murder in a 2007 Wichita gang shooting but had been transferred to the Ottawa County jail to ease prison overcrowding.

Two of his accomplices were arrested April 18, 2012, the day of the escape, while Carrera-Morales was arrested a day later. The fourth inmate was caught April 20, 2012.

The incident prompted state corrections officials to transfer 18 other state inmates from Ottawa County back to the prison in Ellsworth.
