A federal judge has ordered Conrad Black, former media mongol, to return to prison to serve the rest of his 42-month sentence for defrauding investors. He will be spending the next 13 months in a Chicago prison.

Black, the former chairman of media conglomerate Hollinger International Inc, had been out on bail after successfully appealing to the US Supreme Court.
