Ishmael Scott is on trial along with two alleged accomplices for a 2010 killing stemming from a shootout at a barbecue.

Essex County authorities say Scott was released Tuesday from the Essex County lockup due to a mix-up. By Wednesday morning, Scott had returned voluntarily to the courthouse for the resumption of the trial.

County chief of staff Philip Alagia says the county corrections department’s internal affairs unit is conducting a review of the matter. He didn’t provide details on what might have caused Scott to be released.
