The father of an escaped killer has been arrested for obstruction of justice, District Attorney Matt Chandler said at an afternoon press conference.

Isidoro Salas, who lives in Albuquerque, was arrested on Wednesday. He is the father of Edward Salas, who was among eight inmates who escaped Sunday night from Curry County Adult Detention Center.

Edward Salas has been convicted and sentenced to life in prison for his role in the 2005 shooting death of a 10-year-old Clovis boy.

He remained at large on Wednesday, along with four other escapees.

Chandler said Clovis law officers have also arrested Asha Currie on charges of obstruction of justice. Currie is the mother of Michael England’s child. England also remains at large following the Sunday night jailbreak.
