A former Fayette County Jail guard appeared in court Wednesday on official misconduct charges in connection with a murder suspect who's now on the run.
John McCoy, II plead not guilty to a misconduct charge.
Marlowe Valentine, who had been held in the Fayette County Jail, told investigators McCoy and another guard stole more than $300 from him.
After Valentine made the allegations, he was moved to the Jefferson County Jail.
A judge allowed Valentine out of jail on a pass to visit a doctor in Lexington.
Valentine didn't return when he was supposed to on Monday, so police began looking for him.
He was last seen at a Georgetown gas station.
