DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A man freed last year after being granted a new trial for a 1996 Des Moines slaying has been charged with fleeing prosecution in a new case.

The Des Moines Register says David Flores was charged last week. Polk County Jail records say Flores remained in custody on Thursday. His attorney didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.

Flores served 16 years for the shooting death of Phillis Davis before his conviction was overturned. The charges were refiled, but Flores reached a plea deal that kept him out of prison.

Once out, Flores was arrested three times in two months, including on a charge that he attacked his ex-girlfriend.

Police say Flores skipped town after bonding out. He was taken into custody eight months later in Arizona.
