    DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- In the nearly 40 years after he escaped from the maximum-security military prison at Fort Leavenworth, convicted killer James Robert Jones carved out a new life for himself in Florida, living under an assumed name, getting married and working for an air conditioning company.

    He recaptured with the help of facial-recognition software connecting his prison photo with that on his driver's license.

    "The first words out of his mouth were, `I knew this would catch up with me someday,'"
