Polson Man Back in Jail Shortly After Release
Clifford Oldhorn was booked in the Lake County Jail on a probation violation
POLSON — A man convicted of killing a former Salish and Kootenai tribal chairman in July 2005 is back in jail less than a week after being released on his own recognizance.

KERR-AM reported Monday that Clifford Oldhorn has been booked in the Lake County Jail on a probation violation. Authorities have not said what conditions of his release the 26-year-old Oldhorn may have violated.

Oldhorn was released from jail last Wednesday pending a new trial in the killing of Harold Mitchell Jr.

District Judge C.B. McNeil ordered him released after ruling Oldhorn's confession to investigators in 2008 was not given voluntarily and should be suppressed.

Lake County is appealing to the Montana Supreme Court.
