DES MOINES, Iowa - David Flores, the man freed after serving 16 years in prison after being granted a new trial in a 1996 slaying, is accused of fleeing prosecution in a different criminal case.

According to the Des Moines Register, Flores, 37, was charged with flight to avoid prosecution. Flores said that he fled Des Moines after he was charged with domestic abuse, willful injury and false imprisonment. Flores is accused of beating an ex-girlfriend last September.

Flores spent 16 years in prison after being convicted in a 1996 shooting death. The conviction was overturned and a plea deal was reached that kept Flores from returning to prison. Following his release, he was arrested three times in a two month period, including the domestic abuse incident.

In May, Flores was found by a bounty hunter in Arizona and returned to Des Moines.

    The best place for this knuckle dragger is back in prison. It’s just a shame that he’ll be a drain on honest, hardworking taxpayers for the rest of his life.
