GRAYSON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Eric C. Conn is now lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center. Initially, federal agents placed Conn in the Fayette County Detention Center following his return to the United States.
Agents captured Conn as he ate at a Pizza Hut in Honduras on Saturday, exactly six months after he went on the run. In June, Conn slipped out of his ankle bracelet and left it on the side of Interstate 75 in Fayette County. Agents searched for Conn for months before finally catching him last week.
Conn pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to four charges in connection with his escape. A judge set Conn's trial on those charges for February 2018.
