Lloyd Hammond released from jail

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two days after confessing to killing a man in 2006, one of Louisville most infamous criminals was released from jail Wednesday.

Lloyd Hammond left Metro Corrections around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday wearing a white hoodie and sweats and carrying two boxes of personal belonging.

Hammond pleaded guilty to manslaughter Monday in connection to the shooting death of Kerry Williams in 2006.

He was convicted of murdering Williams and two other men in 2010 and ordered to spend the rest of his life in prison.

But the state supreme court reversed the decision, ruling that recorded testimony from a dead witness should not have been shown to the jury.

The other two cases are pending while prosecutors appeal.

Hammond was ordered to serve 10 years from Williams death, but he's already been in jail long enough to be released today on time served.
