IONIA (WKZO) -- State corrections officials are promising a thorough investigation into the events that led to the escape of convicted murderer Michael Elliott.
Elliott broke out of the maximum security Ionia Correctional Facility on Sunday night. He was recaptured early last night in LaPorte County, Indiana.
Elliot is serving life without parole for killing four people in 1993.
Meanwhile in LaPorte County, Eiliot was charged with one count of car theft and ordered held on a million dollars bond after he announced that he intended to fight extradition back to Michigan.
It may delay his return to the state, but it won't prevent it.
Indiana officials say they are as anxious to get him out of their state as Michigan is to get him back, and they will likely drop any charges for any crimes he commited in Indiana during his escape.
Elliot shouted out to reporters as he was led to the court in chains that he didn't intend to hurt anyone, he just wanted a second chance.
