Fugitive arrested in downtown Madison

A fugitive on the run from a Kansas prison was arrested Wednesday in downtown Madison.

Ronald Schwensow, 72, was taken into custody by U.S. marshals on the steps of the Wisconsin state Capitol building.

Officials said the Milwaukee native had been living in Madison since escaping from the Leavanworth federal prison last year.

He was supposed to be serving a 22-year sentence for a firearms conviction.
