Four inmates escape from two N.J. prisons

    Two prisoners escaped Monday afternoon while on work detail in Burlington County, N.J.

    Authorities will have their work cut out for them in the search because two other inmates went missing from a different facility not even 24 hours earlier.
    Joseph Brandt, 28; and Terrence Feeney, 42; went missing from work detail at the Brigadier General William C. Doyle Veterans Cemetery in Wrightstown, the Star-Ledger reports. Hours earlier, Corey Agostarola, 21; and Michael Bentley, 23; escaped from Mountainview Youth Correctional Facility in Hunterdon County.

    All four men are pictured in their mugshots wearing the same tan-colored jumpsuits. They face up to five additional years in prison each if convicted of escape charges.
