BATH COUNTY, Ky. (FOX 56/WKYT) – A Bath County fugitive is back in custody after a standoff.

According to deputies, 54-year-old Terry Wilson was on the run since Nov. 1 after he cut his ankle bracelet a little after 3:00 a.m. and failed to appear in court proceedings in Bath County. He’s facing a number of charges in multiple counties, including kidnapping and strangulation.

When officers tracked him down, he barricaded himself inside a home for an hour and set the building on fire inside. He finally came out later holding a shotgun.

Officers managed to arrest Wilson, and no shots were fired.
