A 48-year-old jailed murderer has been captured more than three months after he escaped from authorities through the rear of a prison bus that had stopped at a red light downtown.
Levi Arthur Hudson, who was serving a life plus 20-year sentence for a double murder in 1968, was arrested without incident by FBI agents about 2 p.m. yesterday in an apartment in the 6600 block of St. Vincent's Lane in West Baltimore, the bureau said.
"It was just good police work" that led to his arrest, said James Dearborn, an FBI spokesman.
Another inmate who fled with Hudson, George Edward Jolly, 57, was arrested Aug. 12 by city police. He was serving a life sentence for beating a 31-year-old East Baltimore woman to death with a hammer in 1972.
