After a picture of a former Oxford police officer went viral Thursday on Facebook, Matthew Kinne, accused of murdering Dominque “Lucy” Clayton, has been moved from Panola County Jail.

Kinne was photographed in the Panola jail outside of his jail cell freely standing at a counter eating without handcuffs with no officers around him. The photo was shared and received more than 600 times with hundreds of outraged comments accompanying the posts.

Kinne was formally charged with the murder of Clayton and denied bond in May. He has remained in custody at the Panola County Jail since his arrest. District Attorney Ben Creekmore confirmed to news outlets that Kinne is being moved to an undisclosed jail.

Creekmore stated the location will remain undisclosed so other inmates will not know Kinne is a former officer. According to reports, Creekmore did not discuss the treatment of Kinne at Panola County Jail.

However, according to the phone application MobilePatrol, Kinne was moved to Union County Jail Thursday.


Attorney Carlos Moore, retained by the family of Clayton told Hottytoddy.com that treatment Kinne received while at Panola County Jail was “a slap in the face to Clayton’s family.

“The photo of Matthew Kinne getting preferential treatment while incarcerated in jail was a slap in the face to the family of Dominique Clayton,” Moore said. “However, it only made us more determined to get justice for Dominique and to continue to pray that Matt is indicted for capital murder and convicted of the same.”

Kinne was fired from the Oxford Police Department shortly after his arrest in May. According to family members, the two had been dating for about a year, even though Kinne was married.

Clayton was found shot to death at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 19, at her Brittany Woods home. The Oxford Police Department turned the investigation over to the Mississippi Bureau of Investigations after determining Kinne was a suspect and was apparently “involved” with Clayton.

The case is expected to go before the grand jury next week.
