A murder suspect who was wrongly released from a Charlotte, North Carolina jail has turned himself in, police said.
Jaylan Noah Davis, who is accused of shooting and killing Arthur Mikulski in November 2022 and is being held without bond, according to CBS News affiliate WBTV, was wrongfully released from the Mecklenburg County Detention Center on Thursday due to an erroneous court order.
Police said the errant order indicates that Davis’ charges, which include murder and other violent crimes, have been dismissed, according to WBTV.
It is not clear how the error was made.
