David Sweat has been transferred to Attica Correctional Facility.
The Department of Corrections tells NewsChannel 13 Sweat was transferred from another prison last Friday.
Sweat and Richard Matt broke out of the prison back in 2015, triggering a massive, days-long manhunt.
Matt was killed. Sweat was captured.
He was sentenced to life in prison for killing a sheriff's deputy in 2002 and sentenced again for his escape.
