Viscious murderer Lee Nevins is on the run again after absconding from prison for a second time.

Nevins and his accomplice Mark Lang were jailed for life for the sadistic killing of disabled 20-year-old Lee Jobling at his Gateshead home in 2006.

Less than two years into his life sentence, Nevins escaped while being taken from Frankland Prison in County Durham to Sunderland Royal Hospital for treatment of a hand injury.

A huge manhunt was launched and he managed to spend a week on the run before finally being arrested in Scotland.

The violent criminal, now 39, is once again at large after absconding from an open prison in Derbyshire, nearly 16 years after being convicted of the murder.

A Prison Service spokesperson said: 'HMP Sudbury is working with police to recapture Lee Nevins quickly and on capture he faces longer behind bars.'

HMP Sudbury in Ashbourne is a Category D prison, meaning it has a more relaxed regime and houses prisoners defined as 'those who can be reasonably trusted not to try and escape, and are given the privilege of an open prison.'

Nevins and Lang battered Lee to death in his own home after gatecrashing a party.

The horror killing came after years of Lee overcoming the odds to survive a childhood blighted by tragedy.

He was just six when his mum Shirley, who was divorced from his dad, died suddenly from a brain hemorrhage.

Lee and his two brothers went to live with his aunt and uncle, Angela and Garry Knotts, at their home on Gateshead's Leam Lane estate.

Then, at just 15 years old, Lee suffered serious head injuries after falling from a bridge while out playing with friends and spent two weeks in a coma.

The accident left Lee with brain injuries, walking with a limp and suffering from memory problems.

With the support of his family, Lee battled on and, although he was not well enough to work in the months before he died, he had moved into his own flat not far from his aunt's.

On Saturday, April 8, 2006, Lee invited friends to his flat, on Cotemede, for some drinks.

However, word of the gathering spread to the local pub and Nevins and Lang made their way to his home after closing time.

High on drink and drugs, the pair, who did not even know Lee, did not leave with the other guests, but stayed in the flat, where they launched their prolonged attack in the
