PRINCETON, Ind. (AP) - A southern Indiana man convicted in a 2005 killing faces an escape charge after missing a court hearing on his probation status.

Gibson County’s prosecutor filed the escape charge last week against 35-year-old David M. Zimmerman, alleging in part that he intentionally removed his electronic monitoring device.

The Princeton Daily Clarion reports (https://bit.ly/2kl4pME ) a warrant was issued for Zimmerman’s arrest on Dec. 22 after he failed to appear for a hearing on a motion seeking to revoke his probation.

Zimmerman pleaded guilty in 2006 to voluntary manslaughter in the June 2005 shooting death of 43-year-old Wade Vore outside a Princeton bar. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison and 10 years of probation. He completed work release last June, but is still subject to terms of his probation.
