Shades of Ted Bundy: Aspen escapee recaptured

Pitkin County deputies have recaptured a man who ran from the courthouse in Aspen after he was sentenced to three years in prison for stealing copper wiring.

Sheriff Bob Braudis says it was the first escape from the courthouse since convicted serial killer Ted Bundy in 1977. He was captured about six days later. Bundy, who faced charges in several states, was executed in Florida in 1989.

On Monday, 45-year-old Warren Carter bolted from the courthouse, ran down an alley and along a bike path before jumping a fence and hiding in the brush. Deputies talked him into surrendering. Carter had pleaded guilty in March to second-degree burglary in a plea deal. It's not clear whether he'll face an escape charge.
