No Social Media For Five Teens Charged With Murder
Five Augusta teens, who have been charged with murder for their involvement in a brawl that resulted in the death of 18-year-old Demajhay D. Bell, have been granted bond.
Senior Judge Albert M. Pickett imposed multiple conditions for the bond beginning with no social media, internet access or the use of any electronic devices – all which are said to have sparked the beef between the two girls who started the deadly fight.
Other conditions include a 6:30 p.m. curfew unless working or in school, no drugs or alcohol, and no possible contact with any firearm.
Demetrius L. Harris, 21, is accused of cutting the throat of 18-year-old Demajhay D. Bell during the melee. The two were friends, and Bell sometimes lived with Harris and his family. Harris has not yet had a bond hearing.
Bond was denied Friday for Eyvette L. Byrd, 39, and Quianna Henley, 35, the two mothers charged in the brawl. The judge set $75,000 bonds for Henley’s daughter, Quiasha Henley, 18; Tyteanna L. Thomas, 18; Myah T. Dunbar, 18; and A’Lexis N. Cain, 18, who were filmed on cellphone cameras fighting each other.
The judge also set a $50,000 bond for Raheem M. Jobes, 19, who is seen on the videos pulling another teen off Byrd, who is Harris’ mother.
The teens were students at Glenn Hills High School where Jobes played on the football team and Dunbar was class president.
Bond hearings also haven’t been held yet for Terry Daniels, 19, and Michael Dean, 20, who was arrested Thursday. The sheriff’s office is still looking for Eddie Carter III, 18.
If convicted, all nine people charged with murder will automatically serve life in prison.
