An ex-royal aide who escaped from open prison was found at a hotel in Kent, England with her family on Wednesday, sources say, Sky News reported.

Jane Andrews, 42, was recaptured by police in Maidstone after escaping from East Sutton Park open prison in Kent on Sunday evening.

The convicted murderer was jailed for life in 2001 for bludgeoning and stabbing her boyfriend Tom Cressman to death when he refused to marry her.

She allegedly attempted suicide last week, Sky News reported.

Sky's crime correspondent Martin Brunt said Andrews was found with her elderly parents and brother at the Premier Inn near Maidstone at around 3 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Her parents had been staying in the room next to hers with her brother, sources told Brunt.

The family had travelled down from their home in the Grimsby area overnight and had picked up Andrews in a taxi before being driven to the hotel, Sky News reported.

Brunt said it is believed the taxi driver recognized Andrews and tipped off the police.
