Black Country murder suspect John Anslow has been arrested in northern Cyprus following his escape from a prison escort van more than a year ago.
The 32-year-old, of Tipton, was wanted in connection with the murder of Staffordshire father Richard Deakin in Chasetown in July 2010.
He escaped from a prison van near HMP Hewell in Worcestershire in January last year.
He was arrested in the Alancak area of northern Cyprus for immigration offences on Wednesday and deported by the Turkish Cypriot authorities.
Anslow was then arrested at Heathrow Airport this morning before being transferred to a high-security prison.
He will appear via video link at Stafford Crown Court on Monday for failing to appear at court in January 2012.
In the past three weeks, nine men have been arrested and charged by West Mercia Police in connection with Anslow's escape.
