Donnie Rowe, one of the two Georgia fugitives accused in the murder of two prison guards, has ties to Rutherford County.
Rowe and Ricky Dubose both surrendered last week after a day of stealing cars, home invasions and high speed police chases.
We've heard from several people who know Donnie Rowe and his troubled youth, which began here in Rutherford County. He was from Smyrna, where he went to high school.
Rowe, in his younger days, had several run-ins with the law in Rutherford and Bedford Counties. He has a son, who still lives in Middle Tennessee.
