A jail representative confirmed Thursday that Joseph Walker of Eastampton  has been released. Walker is accused of killing 36-year-old Joseph Harvey Jr. on Saturday.

Anthony Pope, one of Walker’s lawyers, tells the Star-Ledger Walker has returned home. He would not disclose how the bail was raised but said the money came from several sources.

Walker’s attorney has said the detective did not initiate the fight and that Harvey ignored repeated warnings from Walker, who identified himself as a police officer. The attorney has said Walker’s wife and children were in the van and Harvey threatened to kill the family.

Pope says Harvey threatened Walker with racial slurs and violence against he and his family.

Walker is a sworn officer with the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office in New Jersey. He has been suspended from duty without pay.
