Superior Court Judge Denise Fachini denied bond today for Michael Anthony Savage, according to Cordele Circuit District Attorney Brad Rigby.

Savage has been charged with murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon stemming from the June 9, 2019, shooting of Kenneth Armstrong on Roosevelt Street.  At the time of these offenses, Savage was on probation for aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, for which he was sentenced to 10 years to serve 3 years in prison in May of 2016.

The Court denied Savage’s bond based upon the serious nature of the offenses and that he posed a danger to commit a felony if released on bond.
