Putnam Murder Case Bound Over To Grand Jury

Second degree murder charges against a Putnam County woman have now been bound over to the grand jury. A preliminary hearing was held this week for 28-year-old Dana Kay Garrett of Claude Loftis Road in the Double Springs community. After hearing testimony from sheriff's deputies who investigated the incident, Judge John Hudson found probable cause to bind the case to the grand jury. Garrett was arrested in September after allegedly stabbing her husband in the chest. Police say Garrett at first told them that she didn't know what had happened to her husband, and later said he threatened her with a knife and that he was killed as they struggled with the weapon. Police say the couple had a history of domestic violence. Garrett remains jailed under $100,000 bond.
