July 1--  Sixteen years ago, 49-year-old Manuel Hrneith escaped from a North Carolina prison where he was serving an 18-year sentence for second degree murder.

Early Thursday morning he was arrested at his home in Cobbtown where he has been living since at least 2004 under the alias Alfredo Urieta.  A woman in the mobile home told Tattnall County deputy sheriffs she was his wife and that three children in the home were their's.  He made a living selling pine straw.

Police say he offered no resistance and they found four rifles and handguns in the home.  

He's being charged in Tattnall County with possession of guns by a convicted felon and is awaiting extradition to North Carolina.
