Associated Press RALEIGH, N.C. — A man wanted in a Virginia slaying was caught in North Carolina and managed to escape custody, only to be tackled by a bystander. Citing a news release, news outlets report 41-year-old George William Knisley was arrested Friday in Raleigh and was being transferred to a detention center when he escaped. Authorities say he complained his handcuffs were too tight and fled when a deputy tried to loosen them. John Martinez Jr. says he was walking down the street when he saw a man in an orange jumpsuit sprinting away from an officer. Martinez says the officer needed help, so he dashed after the man and tackled him. Knisley is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Matthew T. Broyles, of Powhatan. He's also accused in the disappearance of 43-year-old Amy Renee Fabian.
