OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Matthew Kinne is no longer an Oxford police officer after he was arrested for murder.

Interim Oxford Police Chief Jeff McCutchen and Mayor Robyn Tannehill both confirmed that Kinne was terminated from the Oxford Police Department.

The Board of Aldermen voted Tuesday night to terminate Kinne.

Kinne was a four-year veteran of the police department and was a member of the mounted patrol.

He is accused of killing Dominique Clayton at her home in Oxford.

Kinne appeared in Circuit Court Wednesday afternoon where Judge Andy Howorth pushed the bond hearing to a later date.

Clayton’s family, along with McCutchen, voiced their frustration with the judge’s decision.
