Arizona escapee due in GarCo court today

GLENWOOD SPRINGS — An Arizona escapee captured in western Colorado is due in court where prosecutors will announce whether he’ll face charges stemming from a shootout during his capture.

Thirty-six-year-old Daniel Renwick is one of three convicted murderers who escaped from a privately run prison in Arizona July 30. He was due in court Wednesday.

Police say Renwick fired shots at them during a chase in and near the town of Rifle Aug. 1. Police captured Renwick after ramming his SUV with their car.

Renwick could be charged with attempted first-degree murder, vehicular eluding, and possession of a weapon by a previous offender. He also faces an escape charge from Arizona.

A second escapee was captured Monday in Wyoming. A third escapee and his alleged accomplice remain at large.
