LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A man accused in the 2017 killing of an Italian tourist in Little Rock is back in jail after he had been mistakenly released from custody two months ago.

The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office says Andre Jackson was arrested Wednesday at a hotel near Little Rock's airport. Jackson is charged with capital murder and aggravated robbery in the death of Carlo Marigliano, who was found fatally shot last July.

Jackson was released from prison in March after completing a sentence for a separate crime. A prison spokesman says employees checked for any warrants or convictions for Jackson before his release, but nothing was on file.

Pulaski County sheriff's officials said there should have been a detainer on Jackson, and it's unclear where in the process mistakes were made.
