IONIA (WKZO) -- It took Michael Elliot 53 minutes to break out of the Ionia Correctional Facility on Sunday according to court records.

A State Police trooper testified in district court in Ionia yesterday that Elliot's escape was caught on surveillance video, showing he started at 6 p.m. and was out at 6:53 p.m.  It's not known if anyone was monitoring the cameras during the escape of the convicted murderer.

Elliot remains behind bars in LaPorte County, Indiana, where he is fighting extradition back to Michigan.
