Dothan, AL (WTVY)-- Andrea Flagg, a convicted murderer released from prison by mistake, is back in custody. Dothan police and federal marshals captured him Wednesday at a Ross Clark Circle hotel.
Flagg, 34, had been on the run since his release last Thursday from Donaldson Correctional Facility in Bessemer. That's when he completed serving a sentence on an unrelated charge.
Prison officials apparently did not realize he should be returned to Dothan for another trial on charges he shot 33-year old James Gillard in 2015. His conviction had been overturned on legal technicalities.
