(AP) -- Accused murderer Theodore Bundy escaped from custody today by jumping from a second-floor window in the Pitkin County Courthouse during a recess in a pretrial hearing. The county .sheriff's department said roadblocks had been set up on Colorado Highway 82, the main road leading out of this mountain resort community. A dispatcher said deputies on foot and in patrol cars were searching the streets of Aspen for Bundy. Bundy, a former Republican party worker in Washington, had been ordered to stand trial on a first-degree murder charge in the slaying two years ago of a Michigan nurse. He was returned to Colorado from Utah,' where' he was serving a l-to-15 year sentence for the 1974 kidnaping of a Salt lake City girl. Bundy, 29, a former law student, escaped during a hearing on a motion he' filed to waive .the death penalty if he is found guilty. Defense attorneys assisting Bundy had finished their arguments, and District Court Judge George Lohr declared a recess before hearing the prosecution response.
