Killer on the run is caught

A CONVICTED killer has been arrested in Edinburgh after being on the run for a week.

Samuel Stewart, who failed to return to Castle Huntly open prison last Wednesday, was traced in Edinburgh yesterday.

Stewart, 47, was sentenced to almost five and half years in prison after being convicted of assault to severe injury and permanent disfigurement in 2009.

Despite a list of previous convictions including culpable homicide, Stewart was moved to the open prison in January.
