Fugitive taken into custody in Breckenridge County, Ky.

Fugitive Tracy Dunaway has eluded police in Harrison County about six months since his release from a Louisville hospital, where he was treated for critical burns sustained in what police believe was a methamphetamine explosion near Central.
Dunaway, 33, was taken into custody on April 25 in Breckenridge County, Ky., by Kentucky State Police on arrest warrants from Harrison County and Jefferson County, Ky., plus preliminary charges of fleeing police, driving without proof of liability insurance, changing drivers while a vehicle is in motion, no seat belt and leaving the scene of an accident, police said.
He remained in jail yesterday with bond set at $50,000 full cash only, authorities there said.
Samantha Roman of Elizabeth was taken into custody along with Dunaway, but no other information was available yesterday concerning her status.
Dunaway was arraigned yesterday in Breckenridge County District Court.
Harrison County Deputy Prosecutor Lauren Wheatley said proceedings have begun to return Dunaway to Harrison County, where he faces charges of dealing and possession of methamphetamine, possession of two or more chemicals used in the manufacture of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.
He is also wanted in Jefferson County, Ky., for parole violation, which Wheatley said she believes relates to the charges filed here.
