Quebec convict caught five days after escaping

QUEBEC - A convicted murderer who escaped from a minimum-security prison near Montreal last week has been caught.

Robert Gaudette was arrested without incident Sunday evening on a downtown Quebec City sidewalk.

Gaudette, 55, appeared briefly in court Monday and was to be transferred to Laval, north of Montreal.

He is expected to be arraigned on Wednesday on a charge related to his escape.

Gaudette made off from the Federal Training Centre in Laval last Tuesday, with sources saying he hopped out of a window in his room.

He had been behind bars since receiving a life sentence in 2002 for the second-degree murder of his wife, Cindy Bouchard.

Gaudette was set to have a parole hearing soon.
