CORDELE, GA (WALB) - The man accused of killing Ashley Garry in Cordele last year made his first appearance in court Friday at 9:15.
Cameron Carter was denied bond by chief magistrate Judge Stephen Ingram.
He said he can't set a bond for crimes of this magnitude, because it's not under his jurisdiction. Carter should have another hearing sometime next week in Superior Court.
Ashley Garry was killed in her home in September of 2014 when she was 27, and there were almost no clues left behind.
Sheriff Billly Hancock says Carter is the only person involved at this time. The investigation lasted over 4 months. but investigators never slowed up on the case.
"It's almost a no brainier. You know that you're going to have somebody assigned to that homicide case as long as their are active leads coming in and something to be worked, you're going to work it," said Sheriff Hancock.
Carter was arrested in Pulaski County during a burglary in progress on November 11. 2014. That's when GBI and Crisp deputies found the weapon, a Jimenez .380 pistol. The weapon was key in tying Carter to Garry's murder.
