MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The Milwaukee man who took off in the middle of his trial and hid from police was back in court on Wednesday.
25-year-old Dwayne Chaney pleaded guilty to felony bail jumping, now facing an additional six years in prison for the charge.
In October, Chaney was convicted of killing Michael Prescott.
During the murder trial, police say Chaney walked away from the courthouse, cut off his GPS tracker, and hid from police with the help of his girlfriend and mother.
Police caught him hiding in a garbage can after he was on the run for four days.
The guilty plea means Chaney will not go to trial. He will be sentenced for both bail jumping and the homicide he was convicted of despite his absence on January 5.
