Man who escaped a year ago in KCK recaptured

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A man who escaped from a Wyandotte County courtroom nearly a year ago has been recaptured.

The Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office said in a news release that 24-year-old Robert E. Ingram was found at a Kansas City, Kan., home Tuesday. No other details about his arrest were immediately released.

Ingram ran from the courtroom last March 2 after a judge revoked his probation in a drug case and ordered him into custody. He was holding a 6-month-old child in his arms when he jumped into a vehicle that sped away. The baby was found safe later that day.

Prosecutors later charged Ingram with a felony count of aggravated escape.

The Kansas City Star reports ( ) Ingram's sister was placed on diversion after being charged with aiding the escape.
