Latest: Escape suspect to be isolated, few jail calls

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) " The Latest on the apprehension of a murder suspect who fled a Florida courthouse (all times local):

2:15 p.m.

A murder suspect captured nearly a week after he escaped from a South Florida courthouse will be held in isolation in jail with strictly limited communication.

A judge on Thursday also ordered 21-year-old Dayonte Resiles to be held without bond on a new escape charge. Resiles will be allowed to communicate with his attorney, but will not be allowed to receive phone calls or mail, or to talk with other inmates. Authorities also will give him a mental health evaluation.

Seven people are charged as accomplices to Resiles' escape.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel says Resiles was captured without incident late Wednesday at a Days Inn in West Palm Beach. Israel says some people may be eligible for a $50,000 reward seeking information leading to Resiles' capture.

Resiles escaped last Friday. He is accused in the 2014 stabbing death of 59-year-old Jill Halliburton Su during an attempted robbery at her home in Davie, Florida.

Su's family founded the Halliburton oil services company.

Two more alleged accomplices have been arrested for playing roles in the escape from a South Florida courthouse of a murder suspect who's now back in custody.

Broward Sheriff's Office arrest reports released Thursday morning identify the pair as 31-year-old Francine Mesadieu and 18-year-old Paige Jackson. Investigators say Mesadieu provided 21-year-old Dayonte Resiles with a wig, clothes and colored contact lenses to disguise himself and Jackson helped plot the escape through jail phone calls.

They bring to seven the number of people charged with helping Resiles escape last Friday from a Broward County Courthouse courtroom.

A Florida sheriff says a murder suspect who escaped last week from a courthouse while awaiting a hearing has been apprehended without incident at a hotel.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel told reporters early Thursday morning that 21-year-old Dayonte Resiles surrendered Wednesday night at a Days Inn in West Palm Beach.

Israel says Resiles, who was alone, obeyed orders from a SWAT team to come out of a room. He lay on the ground and allowed himself to be handcuffed.
