Absconded killer recaptured by police
The 38-year-old absconded on Wednesday.
A convicted killer who absconded from prison has been caught by police.
Andrew Craigie was handed a life sentence after admitting manslaughter by diminished responsibility in 2007 at Stafford Crown Court.
The 38-year-old absconded from HMP Sudbury in Derbyshire on Wednesday morning but was arrested on Tixall Road, Stafford, at 11pm, Staffordshire Police said.
Craigie killed 61-year-old grandfather Geoffrey Watkins in a frenzied knife attack on June 28 2006.
He has been returned to the Category D prison, officers added.
