BALTIMORE, JUNE 25 -- A man who escaped from a Tennessee prison in 1974 while serving a 99-year sentence for his part in the killing of two Tennessee police officers was captured today in northeast Baltimore, an FBI spokesman said.

FBI agents arrested Stephen Correlus Parker, 43, about 4:50 p.m., said FBI spokesman Andrew Manning.

Parker, who was driving a 1979 car with Virginia license plates, offered no resistance, he said.

Parker and four others were charged with the January 1968 murder of two police officers in Nashville, Manning said.

Parker, Ralph Canady and William Garrin Allen were convicted and each received 99-year prison sentences, he said.

In May 1974, all three escaped from the state penitentiary in Nashville.

Canady was arrested April 1, 1986, in the Hunt Valley area of Baltimore County, Manning said.

He hanged himself in his cell in the Woodlawn precinct of the Baltimore County police headquarters later that night, Manning said.

A fourth person charged in the murders fled immediately after the shooting. Charles Lee Herron was a fugitive on the FBI's 10 Most Wanted List for 18 years before he was captured a year ago in Atlanta, Manning said.

Allen also was arrested about the same time, he said.

Parker, who will be turned over to Baltimore city authorities, faces extradition to Tennessee, Manning said.
