BANGOR – A convicted murderer who is accused of escaping a Maine prison has been arraigned.

Sixty-five-year-old Arnold Nash pleaded not guilty to intentionally leaving the Mountain View Correctional Facility in Charleston in September.

WABI-TV reports Nash was in the final year of a 45-year sentence for previous crimes.

Police say Nash was recaptured after four days. He had previously escaped from prison in 1981.

Nash is being held at the Penobscot County Jail in Bangor on $100,000 bail.
