Grand jury hands up new indictment against inmate accused of escape

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A federal inmate with Mafia ties who
escaped custody by kicking open a prison van door in Kentucky has
been reindicted.
A federal grand jury on Monday handed up a superseding
indictment against 37-year-old Derek A. Capozzi. The new indictment
keeps the escape charge, but deleted some information about how
inmates are transported.
Capozzi was in Kentucky to testify at a federal trial and was
being taken back to a prison in Pennsylvania when he kicked open
the van door and fled on April 15. He was caught two days later.
His trial date is set for Dec. 21.
