Crisp Co. murder trial set to begin

Ashley Garry Ashley Garry
CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

Cameron Carter is set to go on trial today in Crisp County court, charged with murdering 27 year old Ashley Garry in her home on South 10th Street last September. He has also been indicted on unrelated rape charges in Cordele. 

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.

Garry worked at the Cracker Barrel in Cordele for more than five years. The reward offered for information in this case climbed from $1,500 to $6,500 after Cracker Barrel added to the total.

Garry's Cracker Barrel co-workers had a bake sale to raise money to help find the person who killed her. She leaves behind  her 10 year old son Jarmal. "I'm very sad and I hope they find who did this and when they do I will appreciate it and I will thank them a lot," he said in 2014.

Crisp County Sheriff Billy Hancock says they don't investigate many Crisp County murders, but when they do, they usually solve them quickly. "This is the first homicide since 2011 outside the city limits of Cordele, and the first since 1997 that this agency hasn't solved within three days of the incident."
