A Montgomery County jail escapee arrested in Green Bay, Wis., last week could be back in Kentucky by next week, said a sheriff's detective.
On Friday, U.S. Marshals in Green Bay arrested Stewart Creekmore, 25, who escaped from the Montgomery County jail Oct. 7, said Det. Ralph Charles of the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office. Creekmore is now lodged in the Brown County Jail in Wisconsin.
Creekmore appeared in court in Green Bay on Monday and did not fight extradition to Kentucky, Charles said.
A Montgomery County grand jury indicted Creekmore last week on an escape charge. He was already charged with murder, fetal homicide and first-degree assault in connection with a July vehicular crash in which Henry Bush, 53, died.

Police say Creekmore ignored a traffic signal when the vehicle he was driving struck a truck driven by Bush.
Creekmore's passenger, his girlfriend, was 6 months pregnant but lost the baby after the crash.
Charles said authorities were able to track Creekmore's location when he logged onto Facebook and other computer sites.
"We've been tracking him for the last several weeks, and with help from the U.S. Marshals, we got a location on him," Charles said. "The U.S. Marshals then contacted the Green Bay, Wis., police and captured him at a residence there that he had been staying at."
Before the arrest, Creekmore went from one apartment into another apartment in an attempt to avoid arrest, Charles said.
Creekmore is scheduled to appear Dec. 21 in Montgomery Circuit Court in Mount Sterling for a pretrial conference on the murder, fetal homicide and assault charges.
