QUEBEC CITY, Que. - The three men captured by police after making a brazen helicopter escape from jail two weeks ago are set to appear in court today in Quebec City.

Yves Denis, Denis Lefebvre, and Serge Pomerleau were arrested early Sunday morning at a luxury condo in Montreal.

The men were facing murder and gangsterism charges before their June 7th jailbreak.

They're expected to face additional charges in court today.

The Quebec government has ordered an internal investigation into the jailbreak — the second by helicopter in just over a year.

Two inmates fled the St-Jerome detention centre by helicopter in March 2013, but were quickly recaptured.
