A man mistakenly released from the Clark County Jail is back behind bars.

Investigators said Zackery Searcy, 20, was involved in a murder on Feb. 29, 2012. He was arrested last Thursday in Federal Way, WA, by Vancouver detectives for an outstanding warrant out of Clark County.

He was taken from Federal Way to the Clark County Jail by detectives. He was booked on the charge of rendering criminal assistance.

Police said he was mistakenly released by jail staff on April 19.

The U.S. Marshals Service notified Vancouver police Thursday that Searcy had been arrested again in Federal Way.

He is now being held at the Kent Regional Justice Center awaiting transport back to Clark County.

Matthew Starr is charged with premeditated murder for the death of Joshua Schenk in this case. Schenk's body was found near Vancouver Lake March 2, 2012.

Starr is set to face trial July 15.
