Prison Escapee Charged

IONIA -- A convicted killer captured after a one-day escape from a Michigan prison has been charged with kidnapping, carjacking and escape.
The Ionia County District Court says charges were filed Monday while authorities were still hunting for Michael David Elliot. He was captured Monday night in a stolen car in LaPorte County, Ind., more than 150 miles from the Ionia prison.
Elliot is accused of escaping through two prison fences Sunday night and then carjacking a Jeep with a woman inside.
The woman escaped when they stopped for gas in Middlebury, Ind. The Jeep was later found abandoned in nearby Shipshewana, Ind.
Elliot has been serving a no-parole sentence for four murders in Michigan since 1994.
