Police have found the convicted murderer who failed to return to a Gravenhurst jail last week.

Brent Crawford was arrested in Toronto Monday night after being on the lam since Friday.

Crawford was on a three-day pass from the Beaver Creek Minimum correctional facility but never reported back to the jail.

Crawford, whose legal name is Ashley, was serving a life sentence for starting a fire in Killaloe, Ontario that killed Nancy Fillmore, his ex-girlfriend's lesbian lover.

The ex-girlfriend, Cherylle Dell, is also serving a life sentence for murdering her husband, Scott Dell.
