An Alabama inmate who escaped from a state prison four months ago is now back in custody.

Citing the state department of corrections, news outlets report 50-year-old Kevin Bradley Nelson surrendered to deputies in Chilton County on Tuesday. The agency says Nelson was serving two years at a state prison for receiving stolen property when he escaped in August.

Details surrounding his escape and what prompted his surrender were unclear as of early Wednesday.
