INKSTER, Mich. (AP) - A Detroit judge says it appears an ex-con accused of killing a 2-year-old girl in front of her father should have been behind bars at the time.

Twenty-five-year-old Raymone Jackson appeared Wednesday for arraignment before Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner in the first-degree murder case.

Groner asked the government why Jackson wasn't jailed March 26 when Michigan paroled him after a drug sentence. Groner gave Jackson 11 months in jail in September in a separate drug case.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Paula Bridges says Jackson actually began serving the 11-month jail sentence last September and was released in March for good behavior.

Bridges says Michigan could have imprisoned him then but didn't.

Prisons spokesman Russ Marlan tells the Detroit Free Press that Michigan couldn't have held Jackson past June 25.
