A man convicted of rape and murder who failed to check in with his probation officer is back in custody.

Allen County Sheriff’s Department officers Wednesday night arrested David Molnar on a parole violation warrant in the 2800 block of West Main Street in Fort Wayne, according to a news release. Molnar allegedly stopped reporting to his supervising agent and moved to an unknown location earlier this week.

Molnar was sentenced in Madison County in 2015 to four years for prisoner in possession of dangerous device, a Class C felony. He was released on parole then returned to the Department of Correction for a parole violation. In January he was released on parole again.

Molnar previously was sentenced in Allen County in 1982 to 55 years for murder and 30 years for rape, a Class A felony. He also served a consecutive 4-year sentence imposed for escape, a Class C felony, in Allen County in 2002. Molnar’s current sentence is consecutive to the escape sentence.

Molnar is currently being held in the Allen County Confinement Facility pending a preliminary parole violation hearing.

His arrest comes after an investigation by the Fort Wayne Parole Field Team, New Haven Police Department and Allen County Sheriff’s Department.
