Alleged Cop-Killer Ralph "Bucky" Phillips Captured

Reports are that Phillips walked out of the woods and surrendered.

From the Associated Press:
A fugitive suspected of fatally shooting a New York state trooper and wounding two others while on the run for more than five months surrendered to police who had cornered him in a cornfield just over the Pennsylvania state line on Friday night.
Ralph "Bucky" Phillips walked out with his hands up, ending the state's largest manhunt for the 44-year-old career thief who broke out of a Buffalo-area jail in April, New York State Police Investigator Gary Colon said.
