A prisoner who escaped from a North Worcestershire prison last October has been given a further six-month sentence to run alongside the life term he is already serving.
The escape of 56-year-old Alan Giles from HMP Hewell sparked a large police hunt. He was arrested in Alcester on November 6.
Giles admitted escaping from lawful custody and was sentenced at Worcester Crown Court.
Giles absconded from prison while serving two life sentences for the 1995 kidnap and murder of 16-year-old Quinton student Kevin Ricketts. He was jailed in 1997.
