FLAGSTAFF  -  A man who escaped from an Arizona prison, Daniel Renwick, and later was captured after a shootout with police in western Colorado won’t face any charges as a result of the prison break.  The Daily Press has learned that A Mohave County judge has dismissed a single escape charge against Daniel Renwick, who was one of three inmates who fled from the prison near Kingman last July. Chief Deputy County Attorney Jace Zack agreed to drop the charge if Renwick received a sentence of at least 58 years stemming from the Aug. 1 shootout.  Renwick pleaded guilty in March to two counts of first-degree attempted murder in the Colorado case. He was sentenced last month to 60 years behind bars.  If he completes that sentence, he will be returned to the custody of the Arizona Department of Corrections to continue serving his time on a second-degree murder conviction.
