BREAKING: Murray County fires another deputy

Posted: Updated:

CHATSWORTH, GA (WRCB) -- A press release from the Murray County Sheriff's Office Friday afternoon stated the Deputy Mike Henderson has been terminated "as of today, 8/31/12."

The release further states that both Henderson and Deputy John Greeson (who was terminated Wednesday) gave false statements to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation during a criminal investigation.

The GBI investigation follows the arrest of Angela Garmley on a drug charge. Garmley, who accuses now former Chief Magistrate Judge Bryant Cochran of asking for sex while working on her case, was arrested August 14.

According to the incident report, a drug dog found a magnetic container beneath her car with meth inside.

Charges against Garmley were dismissed last week and GBI investigators say she should never have been arrested.

Cochran resigned two weeks ago, and is also under investigation for pre-signing warrants.
