Escapee Back In Custody

Convicted murderer Kenneth Moody has been captured by Perry County authorities. Perry County sheriff's Sgt. Danny Merritt said he spotted and arrested Moody, who had escaped over the weekend from the jail, early Wednesday near Runnelstown.

Merritt said Moody was arrested without incident. The search continues for Christopher Scott Thomas, Moody's cellmate who also fled the jail this past weekend. Moody was serving a life sentence without parole for two 1995 murders.

Moody was supposed to stand trial Monday for the murder of Michael Lee of Mobile, Ala.
