The man accused of killing Racine Police Officer John Hetland was released from federal prison just four days before the veteran officer was shot during a robbery.

Hetland was shot June 17 during a robbery at Teezers Bar and Grill, 1936 Lathrop Ave.

Dalquavis T. Ward, 26, of Milwaukee, had just gotten out of prison on June 13, federal Bureau of Prisons records show.

Ward appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge William Duffin Friday afternoon where he was ordered detained for an alleged violation of his probation, according to minutes filed in his federal court file. 

Ward is set to appear before U.S. District Judge Pamela Pepper July 25 for a revocation hearing. 
He was on supervised release — standard when someone is released from federal prison — according to court records. Officials from U.S. Probation and Parole Office did not immediately return a call from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for comment Friday afternoon. 

He's happy to be back in the "system."  Jail/prison is the closest thing to a father that many of these felons have.
