 Las Vegas police say a man and woman accused of harboring a murder suspect who was mistakenly released from a Los Angeles jail last month are out on bond.

Authorities arrested 37-year-old fugitive Steven Lawrence Wright at a Boulder City, Nevada, hotel on Monday along with 39-year-old Bruce Oliver and 39-year-old Lavera Wilson.  Wright had been hiding out for days after being released in January over a paperwork mistake.

He was facing a new trial after an overturned murder conviction.  He's being held at the Henderson city jail awaiting extradition with no additional charges expected.

Oliver and Wilson are accused of harboring, concealing or aiding a felony offender. Police haven't detailed their relationship with Wright.

They were released on bond Tuesday and it's unclear if they have attorneys.
