Bond was denied Friday for Michael Everidge, who is charged with murder in connection with the death of another inmate at Augusta
Youth Development Campus.

Superior Court Judge Daniel Craig said Everidge, 18, poses the threat of committing new crimes if released back into the community.

The hearing shed new light on the death of Jade Holder, 19, on Nov. 8 at Medical College of Georgia Hospital from blunt trauma.

Assistant District Attorney Keith Johnson said a fight broke out between the defendant and the victim about 9:30 p.m. after they exchanged words.

Witnesses said Everidge slammed Holder’s head into the sink and toilet area several times, then punched him at least three times while Holder was still limp.

“Numerous photos show blood spatter on the sink and that part of the cell,” Johnson said.

Other juveniles said that Everidge “overdid it” and pulled him off Holder, who could not be resuscitated, Johnson said.

Everidge has completed his sentence at the YDC for robbery by snatching and remains incarcerated for the charges of felony murder and malice murder.

His attorney, Katrell Nash, argued Friday that Everidge should be released because of his age and previous good conduct at the YDC.

She suggested that he be placed on house arrest or even given an ankle
monitor to track his movements.

Nash acknowledged that Everidge has a “troublesome” criminal history, but argued that he is trying to pursue an education and become an electrician.

“The state is hammering the point that he is a constant threat to the community,” Nash said.

I just have to say this is

I just have to say this is whole case has been a debacle after debacle. Those of use who provide our services as jurors need to really pay attention. We should not judge anything that has come from this case until we hear it all. There has been story after story told and still no clarification as to what happen. I am just floored by the different not only to the public but to the deceased boy's mother. How is it that you tell this child's mother a guard and several boys jumped him and that no guards were around but now all of a sudden we have a guard that's a witness. Did the guard stand there and watch what really happened? There was a story printed via Augusta Chronicle that said he was stumped in the head now he was grabbed and slammed on a sink really? These people need to really do their job. It sad and Mr. Everidge is called a threat to society what does that make DJJ? We have guards who were sleeping with juveniles, guards supplying contraband, and guards who are saying the juveniles were in control. I don't see it that away these people was suppose do a job and that didn't happened. Where were the guards when this was going on? There is more to this situation and I wish I could sit on this trial I don't everything has come out about this at all. Let's not be deceived peers we couldn't get a straight answer from DJJ from the beginning and I don't think it is happening now. How you tell one story and move to another seven boys, only one arrest and no others. Interesting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Etlinks his face does not say

Etlinks his face does not say anything in my opinion. We should not rush to judge wait until you hear his side because he has not had a chance to say what happen. We as the public should suspend judgement until then. This is how many cases are tried via media sources. There are many people sitting in jail for crimes they did not commit keep that in mind. Just trying to be fair here.

After listening to everything

After listening to everything invovling this case we really don't know who killed Jade Holder. Murder is murder, but we still are no closer to knowing what happened than we were when it happned. That is all I am saying. This case has more questions than answer but yet we hast to judge. Remember in the beginning the young man was brutally attacked now it was planned which is it?
