|Iowa mulls case of Prescott Valley man who fled prison decades ago|
|By pvtrib.com- Paul Davenport|
PHOENIX (AP) — More than two months after a Prescott Valley man was arrested on a fugitive warrant stemming from his escape from an Iowa prison 37 years ago, officials there have yet to decide whether to extradite or release him.
For over a decade, Charles Cagley thought he was no longer a wanted man based on a private investigator's research in 2005 and on an Iowa prison warden's letter to Veterans Affairs a year later, his wife Virginia Cagley said.
All that came unglued March 27 when police, notified by the FBI that Iowa had a newly outstanding warrant for him, showed up at the couple's home in Prescott Valley. The Cagleys had lived in the area since 2004.
Since Charles Cagley's arrest, Iowa authorities have been trying to decide where things stand legally and what they will do next. Meanwhile, he's been locked up at the Yavapai County Jail in Camp Verde.
