(Scroll down for video) Police are investigating as to how a convict was able to get away from a bailiff and jump to his death.

42-year-old Jason Binkiewicz of Jefferson County, Ohio, was charged with attempted murder and felony assault after shooting a man in the jaw.

Police said that Binkiewicz was drunk when he went to the home of Ronald Horton and shot him in the face. He then ran out of the home to a waiting car.

An attorney for Binkiewicz claimed that he went to the home of Horton to buy drugs and he shot the victim during an argument.

Horton denies selling drugs. He did however admit to having drugs for personal use.

A jury found Binkiewicz guilty of the charges and he was sentenced to 13 years in prison.

As he was taken out of the Jefferson County prison, Binkiewicz somehow managed to free himself from the bailiff and he ran to a window. He then jumped to his death.
