A former police officer in Oxford, Miss., has agreed to plead guilty, admitting to murdering his former lover after she ended their relationship and threatened to expose their affair.
Matthew Kinne, 38, will admit to murdering Dominique Clayton, with whom he was romantically involved.
Lafayette County Circuit Clerk Jeff Busby, assistant district attorney Mickey Mallette and attorney Carlos Moore, who represents the Clayton family, each confirmed to the Oxford Eagle that Kinney will take a plea deal of a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
Clayton’s body was discovered in May 2019 by her 8-year-old son. She had been shot in the head.
At the time, relatives told FOX13 that Clayton’s four children were returning from spending the weekend at their uncle’s. The boy was sent inside to lure Clayton out for a fun prank, but he instead emerged from the home and told his siblings that their mother was dead.
