CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- An inmate who failed to return after being released for his grandfather's funeral is finally back.

Jamal Malcolm Baylis, 29, was allowed to leave the jail on Friday to attend the funeral in Chicago per a court order.

He was supposed to return to the jail by 5:00 p.m. Monday, but never showed up.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office confirms that Baylis turned himself in Wednesday afternoon.

Sheriff Brian Gardner says Baylis will now face an additional charge of Absence from Custody.
