NY Escapee Moved to Max Security Prison

An escaped murderer who was shot after three weeks on the run has been moved from a New York hospital to another maximum-security prison. The state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision says David Sweat was moved from the Albany Medical Center early Sunday. He was taken to the Five Points Correctional Facility in Romulus. Officials say the convict initially will be in the infirmary and then housed in a single cell in a 23-hour confinement unit. Sweat and Richard Matt had escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, near the Canadian border, in early June.
