Man accused of killing girlfriend captured after jail escape

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) — Kalamazoo officials said a man accused of killing his girlfriend is back behind bars after escaping from jail.

Kalamazoo County sheriff's officials say the inmate had been in the county jail's recreation area on Wednesday when he climbed fences and escaped.

He ditched his jail-issued orange jumpsuit after getting free, but was found by authorities about a half-hour later in the city wearing underwear and tennis shoes.

He is expected to be charged Thursday in the escape.

Jail officials are inspecting the fencing for any weak spots.
