An appeal for Martin Casey featured in Crimewatch

A man who killed an Army officer in a car crash has been detained six months after absconding from prison.

Martin Casey, from Leicester, smashed into the back of Maj Rich Angove's car on the A46 in Nottinghamshire in October 2011.

Casey admitted causing death by dangerous driving and was jailed for eight and a half years.

He was serving his sentence at HMP Sudbury, an open prison in Derbyshire, when he absconded on 10 April.

An appeal for him was featured on the BBC's Crimewatch programme in September.

The 29 year old was arrested on 23 October and has been charged with escaping from lawful custody.
