A MURDERER who was on the run from a new super prison for 64 days was captured by police in a nearby city.

A MURDERER who was on the run from a new 'super prison' for 64 days was captured by police in a nearby city.

Terry Lowe, 24, from Plumstead, was serving a 10-year prison sentence at multiple-category HMP Hewell in Redditch when he escaped with two other men on June 7.

Lowe, who in 2000 murdered 19-year-old Terry Booker in Plumstead, was captured in Manchester on Monday.

On the same day, police charged a 24-year-old woman in connection with the disappearance.

West Mercia police waited nearly a week after the escape to launch an appeal.

Nicholas Cole, 32, from Coventry, was serving life for the murder and manslaughter of two men in a nightclub in 1995. He was caught by police after a car crash last Tuesday. Thomas Maloney, 33, from Coventry, turned himself in.

He was convicted in November 2006 of conspiracy and possession of cocaine with intent to supply.

HMP Hewell was only formed in June last year by an amalgamation of three other prisons - Blakenhurst, Brockhill and Hewell Grange. Greater Manchester Police refused to explain Lowe's capture.
