WICHITA, Kansas — A man who was arrested in Kansas after escaping from an Oklahoma prison has been sentenced to more than four years in prison.
The U.S. Attorney's office for Kansas said 40-year-old Lance D. Colbert was sentenced Thursday to four years and five months after pleading guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.
The sentence will be served consecutively to his Oklahoma prison term.
Colbert was arrested March 11 in Spivey, Kansas, two days after he escaped from the Mack Alford Correctional Center in Stringtown, Oklahoma. Prosecutors say he had a .38 caliber revolver when he was arrested.
Colbert was convicted in the shooting deaths of two people in the early 1990s.
