A Florida man released from jail last month — in an effort to reduce the number of COVID-19 outbreaks in county lockups — is now accused of murdering a man a day after his release, according to the New York Post. Joseph Edward Williams, who was considered a low-level offender, had been facing drug charges. He and 163 other inmates in the same category were released from Hillsborough County Jail on March 19, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.
