MURDER CHARGE DISMISSED AGAINST WAYCROSS MAN

A Waycross man was freed this week after a judge dismissed a murder charge against him.

Octavia Armstrong was released after Ware County Chief Magistrate Lawton Taylor ruled there was insufficient evidence to support the charge. The judge dismissed the charge following a probable cause hearing in the case.

Armstrong had been jailed in late December when he was arrested along with two other people by Waycross police investigating the shooting death of 60-year-old Tommy Allen. Allen's badly decomposed body was discovered Nov. 12 inside his Scruggs Street home by a relative.

Waycross Police Chief James Blackburn has said that Allen died from a bullet wound to the head.

Blackburn said Thursday the investigation into the case is ongoing. Meanwhile, the other two people arrested, Dexter Caradine and LaToya Thompson, remain charged with murder in the case, Blackburn said.

COUNTY PROPERTY RENTALS BLOCKED FOR G-8 SUMMIT

Anyone who thought of reserving a Glynn County park or picnic shelter for a family reunion or company picnic in early June should make other plans.

The Glynn County Commission has suspended all rentals of county properties June 1-15 because President Bush is hosting the G-8 Summit on Sea Island. The summit is scheduled for June 8-10.

With thousands of protestors and media expected, county officials are planning extra security measures.

At their Thursday night meeting, the commissioners at first considered closing the parks June 6-12, but Chairman Mark Bedner said the need to establish temporary fire protection and other temporary emergency services in the parks may begin earlier. The motion changed to June 1-12 until Commissioner Cap Fendig said the closure probably needed to continue a few days past the summit. The commissioners settled on the 15-day suspension.

The closure will not affect leases already arranged, County Attorney Gary Moore said.
