Ohio Murder Suspect Arrested Again After Jail Mistakenly Released Him

Authorities say an Ohio murder suspect has been arrested again after a jail mistakenly released him due to a typo.

CLEVELAND – An Ohio murder suspect who was mistakenly released from jail due to a clerical error was captured Wednesday, authorities said.

U.S. Marshals arrested Amarion Sanders, 22, of Cleveland, during a morning traffic stop in the city.

Sanders was mistakenly released Monday from the Cuyahoga County Correctional Facility in Cleveland, where he was being held on $1 million bail. The jail let him go after charges against a man in an unrelated case were dismissed, and somehow the defendant’s court case number was entered incorrectly.

Sanders’ trial was due to begin on August 19. He is charged with aggravated murder in connection with a September 2023 shooting in Cleveland and has maintained his innocence. His attorney did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday.

County, state and federal law enforcement agencies, including the U.S. Marshals Service, helped search for Sanders.
