Letcher County jail escapee caught

A Letcher County jail escapee is back behind bars.

The Letcher County Sheriff’s Department received an anonymous call Thursday saying Byron Bentley was leaving Virginia and was on his way to Kentucky in a maroon Grand Am.

Officials say the Jenkins Police Chief spotted the vehicle and pulled him over.

He escaped more than a week ago after an elevator stopped in the wrong place in the courthouse.
