Fugitive Arrested in Tennessee Back In Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- An escaped inmate arrested 35 years after she scaled the fence of an Indianapolis prison is back in custody in Indiana.

Sixty-four-year-old Linda Darby was arrested earlier this month in Pulaski, Tennessee.

The Indiana Department of Correction says she waived an extradition hearing and was transported to Indiana Friday. Darby is being held at the Rockville Correctional Facility.

Darby won't be eligible for clemency until she serves 10 years in prison. She served only two years before escaping.

Correction officials will work with prosecutors to determine whether additional charges will be filed in connection with her escape.

Darby was convicted of killing her second husband in their Hammond, Indiana, home.
