Judge considering new trial for man convicted of murder

MITCHELL CO., GA (WALB) -

A judge will decide whether to grant a convicted Mitchell County killer a new trial.

Wednesday Judge Wallace Cato heard arguments on a motion by Gregory Johnson.

In January 2014, a jury convicted him of murdering his friend Hugh Ethridge in Johnson's Baconton home.

Johnson said Ethridge threatened to kill him and the gun went off during a struggle over.
