Officials say a man convicted of murder at age 12, who walked away from his work release program, has been captured at a bus stop by U.S. Marshals.
The Washington Department of Corrections says 25-year-old Jake Eakin was apprehended Tuesday morning without incident in Rapid City, S.D.
A warrant was issued for Eakin’s arrest Sunday after he failed to report to a Yakima work release center.
Eakin will be sent to the Washington Corrections Center in Shelton and could face charges for his unauthorized leave.

Eakin was convicted of murder in 2005 and sentenced to 14 years in prison for the 2003 beating and stabbing death of 13-year-old special education student Craig Sorger. At the time of the killing, Eakin was 12. He had been scheduled for release in September 2016.
