Bond denied in carjacking death

  • Follow Latest News

A 25-year-old Augusta man found shot to death in his car in May was the victim of an attempted carjacking, a prosecutor said today.

Chad V. Shirey, who was killed May 22 on Edison Drive, was on his way home that night when Demario Holden, 20, and Cornilius Price, 17, noticed Mr. Shirey’s car with its 24-inch wheels, Assistant District Attorney Hank Syms said Tuesday in the Richmond County Superior Court bond hearing for the pair.

Mr. Holden followed Mr. Shirey from a Wrightsboro Road convenience store to Edison Drive. Mr. Price got out, masked and armed, to confront Mr. Shirey, the prosecutor said. When Mr. Shirey tried to drive off, the teen shot him twice, Mr. Syms said.

Mr. Price admitted being the gunman after he and Mr. Holden were arrested a month after Mr. Shirey’s slaying, the prosecutor said. He told investigators he didn’t think the gun was loaded.

Mr. Price, who was sentenced to probation in February for a weapon charge, has an extensive juvenile court record. Senior Judge Albert M. Pickett denied bond for him, deeming him a potential threat to the community.

Mr. Holden’s bond hearing was canceled because there is a non-bondable warrant for violation of probation. He was sentenced to three years' probation in September for possession of cocaine.

esmc - My question would be

esmc - My question would be if you really didn't think it was loaded, didn't the first round going off give you a clue before you let go with the second one?

What [filtered word]'s, steal someones

What [filtered word]'s, steal someones life over a car, rather than work and buy your own?? I hope the only way they come out is feet first. Again, they need to start dishing out death penalties and enforcing them swiftly to start detering [filtered word]'s like this!
