Inmate who escaped from Valley City jail captured

VALLEY CITY, N.D. — An inmate is back in custody after briefly escaping from the Barnes County Jail in Valley City.

Authorities say 26-year-old Matthew Kidd Jr. escaped Thursday afternoon while being taken to a recreation area. He was captured without incident a day later after being spotted in trees at a farmstead near Fingal.

KOVC radio reports that Kidd is in jail on a domestic assault charge.
