2 life sentences handed down after guilty verdict in murder trial

CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

A man charged with murdering a woman in her home will spend the rest of his life in prison after he was found guilty in Crisp County Court Thursday.

A jury found Cameron Carter guilty of malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, home invasion, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

He was sentenced to two life sentences plus five years in prison.

Prosecutors said Carter shot and killed 27-year-old  Ashley Garry in her home on South 10th Street in Sept. 2014.

Carter was arrested in Pulaski County during a burglary in progress on November 11, 2014.

That's when the GBI and Crisp deputies found the weapon, a Jimenez .380 pistol. The weapon was key in tying Carter to Garry's murder.

Officials said Carter also faces an indictment on an unrelated rape charge.
