DENVER (AP) -- Colorado court officials have found two more sentencing errors like the one that allowed Evan Ebel to walk out of prison four years early shortly before he was killed in a shootout in Texas.

Prison officials said Tuesday the new errors were uncovered during a review of five years' worth of assault cases ordered by Gov. John Hickenlooper.

According to the Denver Post, neither mistake resulted in any inmates being improperly released.

Authorities believe Ebel killed pizza-delivery driver Nathan Leon on March 17 and shot Department of Corrections chief Tom Clements on March 19 before he was stopped and killed in Texas.
