Man Charged with Murder Accidentally Freed

COLUMBUS, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Mississippi man charged with murder was mistakenly free for days due to a clerical error. 26-year-old Malcolm Hill was found in Alabama, five days after being released from a detention center in Columbus. Hill is back at the center and the employee responsible for the error no longer works there. Hill and his girlfriend, 24-year-old Victoria Slayton, are charged with capital murder in a 2018 slaying. Hill was on parole for burglary and larceny at the time and was initially just held on a parole violation. Jail officials are now reviewing other cases to ensure proper detainer documents are filed.
