OXFORD, Miss (WTVA) -- The Oxford Board of Aldermen accepted the resignations of two officers from the Oxford Police Department on Tuesday night.
The item was on the agenda for Tuesday's meeting at city hall.
Because the issue is a personnel matter, it was taken up during an executive session.
Afterward, Oxford Mayor Robyn Tannehill released the name of the officers.
They are Officer Collins Bryant and Officer Ryan Winters.
This follows in the wake of the murder of Dominique Clayton and the arrest for former officer Matthew Kinne.
The mayor confirmed the officers' resignations but did not say whether or not it had anything to do with the murder case.
She added it is a personnel matter, and by Mississippi law, cannot comment on why the officers resigned.
Carlos Moore, the attorney for Clayton's family, spoke with the media after the meeting.
"They were given the choice actually of resigning or either being fired and immediately placed on administrative leave, and they chose to resign," Moore said.
The city has already requested a review of the police department by the State Attorney General's Office in the wake of Kinne's arrest.
