OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - A former Oxford police officer who is awaiting trial for murder is being moved to another jail after a picture of him outside of his jail cell went viral on Facebook.

Matthew Kinne, who is charged with the murder of Dominique Clayton, was seen outside of his jail cell without any restraints with no officers in sight.

After seeing the treatment he had been receiving, Lafayette County jail officials decided to move him.

According to District Attorney Ben Creekmore, Kinne is being moved from the Panola County jail to an unknown jail.

Creekmore said they are not disclosing the location because they don’t want inmates to know that Kinne used to be a police officer.

Kinne is expected to appear in front of a grand jury next week.
