Michael David Elliot is back behind bars just a day after he broke out of a Michigan prison. He'd been plotting his escape, stealing a cafeteria worker's uniform.
It isn't clear why the prison electric fence or motion sensors failed to stop him. But, now free -- he stole a car and took the female driver hostage. She later escaped and called police as he was pumping gas.
He was captured by Indiana police Monday evening
SOUNDBITE: SGT. RON GALAVIZ, INDIANA STATE POLICE:
"It's a big sigh of relief people were walking around all day on pins and needles."
Elliot, who is serving a life sentence after being convicted of killing four people, is expected to face additional charges including kidnapping and auto theft.
