Convicted murder formally charged with Laval prison break

A convicted murderer who was captured after five days on the lam has been formally charged in connection with his breakout from a Laval jail.

Robert Gaudette appeared in a Laval courtroom today and faces charges of escaping from lawful custody and forcibly breaking out of a cell.

The 55-year-old is due back in court on Aug. 14.

He had been behind bars since receiving a life sentence in 2002 for the second-degree murder of his wife, Cindy Bouchard.

Gaudette was set to have a parole hearing soon.
