Mishna in Makoth 2:7 וְכֹהֵן גָּדוֹל שֶׁהָרַג , אֵינוֹ יוֹצֵא מִשָּׁם לְעוֹלָם A Cohen Gadol who kills goes to the Ir Miklat forever.

Qitzur Shulhhan Arukh, Yalqut Yosef (Orahh Hayim 96:7) states (my translation): וכן אם התחיל להתפלל בעל פה ובאמצע תפלתו התבלבל ואינו יכול להמשיך, מותר לו לעקור ממקומו ליקח סידור ולהמשיך התפלה מתוך הסידור [...] So, too, if one began praying by heart (i.e. Be'al Peh) and, in the middle of his prayer, became confused and unable to continue, he is ...
