Wanted murderer in northeast Arkansas captured

Posted: Updated:

FORREST CITY (KATV) - A convicted murderer who failed to show up for his sentencing hearing is back in custody.

Earlier this month, Anthony Millbrooks took a plea deal for a first degree murder charge from a killing in Forrest City three years ago. A judge released Millbrooks and ordered him to return for sentencing but Millbrooks never showed.

His plea deal sentenced him to 22 years in prison for murder, but St. Francis County deputies said Millbrooks will face an additional escape charge.
