Captured Fugitive Returned To Jail: Douglas Williams, nabbed Saturday afternoon by Ann Arbor Patrolman, Howard R. Remnant (left) five and half hours after the Ypsilanti Negro made a spectacular break for freedom from the courthouse where he was on trial, is turned over to Lt. Erwin Klager, of the Washtenaw sheriff's detective bureau, from whom he had escaped. Remnant found Williams hiding in the basement of a N. Fourth Ave upholstery shop after the courthouse area had been surrounded and combed in one of the most intensive manhunts ever staged in Ann Arbor. Williams' trial as a fourth offender under the Habitual Criminal Act was scheduled for resumption today. He faces a life sentence if convicted.
