BATON ROUGE - A man who faked his own death 16 years ago is now in federal custody.

Milton Windsor Harris, 67, appeared Friday before a U.S. Magistrate in Baton Rouge.

U.S. Attorney Don Cazayoux Jr. says Harris was apprehended in Northern Ireland earlier this year.

Harris has been on the run since 1995 to avoid allegations that he failed to meet terms of his probation.

He spent five years in prison for defrauding his insurance company of more than $500,000.

Harris plead guilty to mail fraud and obstruction of justice in that case.

Harris will remain in custody until after additional hearings are conducted.
