Convicted murderer arrested in battery case

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — A convicted murderer is back in custody after an investigation into a domestic battery incident.

Clifton Craig is facing battery and domestic battery charges. This comes a year after he was rearrested for violating his parole in a 1975 murder case.

In that case, he was sentenced to life for the murder of a 76-year-old woman during a burglary.

Craig was granted parole in 2013 but was rearrested in February 2018 for violating that parole.

Craig was being held without bond as of the time of this report. He is expected to appear in court Tuesday.

ABC21 will provide updates as they become available.
