Home / Local Sanford, NC News / Bond and charges lowered for Sanford man on murder charge.


CHARLOTTE-Kenan Gay was originally charged with first degree murder and jailed without bail after an altercation in a Charlotte tavern that led to the death of an Ohio man.  According to reports from WBTV in Charlotte,  Gay is now facing second degree murder charges, and was in jail on a $100,000 bail.  His lawyer wanted to get him out of jail sooner, but a judge denied that request at the initial court appearance.  Doug Gay, father of Kenan, said Tuesday that over 90 letters in support of Kenan were sent to his attorneys, Chris Fialko and David Rudolf through Saturday, and they were delivered to the magistrate’s office Monday.  The elder Gay said a bond hearing wasn’t necessary after that.  He said the letters were absolutely instrumental with the bond process.  A family friend told WWGP news that Kenan would be coming home Tuesday night.

More local news can be heard Monday through Friday on WWGP 1050 and Classic Hits & Oldies.
