-- Anthony Garver, the man who escaped a Washington state psychiatric hospital Wednesday night, was captured Friday evening, ABC News has confirmed.
Garver, 28 -- who was arrested in 2013 for first-degree murder and accused of torturing a woman to death, but found too mentally ill to stand trial -- was captured in the woods near the Washington-Idaho border Friday, after being tracked down by a police dog, Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich tells ABC News.
As of Friday evening, Knezovich said Garver was under arrest and en route to a hospital, suffering from dehydration.
