WILLCOX — In 1968 in a Florence courthouse, Gary Tison was sentenced to life in prison for killing a prison guard. He wouldn’t stay incarcerated. Ten years later, with the help of his three sons, he escaped, and before they could be captured, killed a family that included a baby, and a couple on their honeymoon.

This was not the first time Tison had been in prison. Nor was it the first time the Tison family had known jail time or prison sentences.
