THE PRISONER captured in Cyprus after 14 months on the run is set to stand trial later this year.
John Anslow was found this week following his escape in January last year. At the time of his escape, he was in a prison van on his way to Stafford Crown Court from HMP Hewell, where he was in custody charged with the murder of Richard Deakin in Staffordshire in July 2010.
The 32-year-old, originally from Tipton, was arrested in the Alancak area of Northern Cyprus, for immigration offences on Wednesday, March 13, and deported by the Turkish Cypriot authorities.
He was then arrested on Saturday morning at Heathrow Airport and transferred to a high security prison.
Anslow appeared via video link at Stafford Crown Court on Monday (March 18) for failing to appear at court in 2012 and a provisional date for his trial was set for October this year.
In the past three weeks, nine men have been arrested and charged by West Mercia Police in connection with his escape.
