A man who spent nearly 50 years as a fugitive, before being found in a small Connecticut town, is set to return to court this week. 
Officials are expected to place 71-year-old Robert Stackowitz under the supervision of a state parole officer in court Tuesday. 
Stackowitz escaped a prison work camp in Georgia in 1968, while serving a robbery sentence.
He fought extradition to Georgia, citing his health, including heart failure and bladder cancer.
Georgia officials accepted a proposal to allow Stackowitz to remain at his home under the supervision of Connecticut authorities.
