Maryland authorities have recaptured a convicted killer who escaped five days ago from a state prison.

Kandelario Garcia-Ramos escaped Saturday from the Maryland Correctional Institution in Hagerstown, scaling two fences topped with razor wire.

State police say an FBI fingerprint comparison has confirmed that the man captured Thursday after a foot chase just six miles from the prison is Garcia-Ramos.

Garcia-Ramos was serving a 40-year sentence for fatally stabbing his former boss in December 2007. The killing was recorded on video at the victim's tire shop in Prince George's County.

Investigators believe Garcia-Ramos slipped away early Saturday as his unit moved to or from the dining hall and then scaled two fences to escape.
