Bail set at $250,000 each for Betty, Carr

By SABRINA GARRETT
The Wilson Post

Derrick Devaughn Carr, 20, of Nashville, and Shawn Derrick Betty Jr., 20, of Nashville, were arraigned in Wilson County Court Thursday.

Neither of the men had an attorney present and bail was set at $250,000 each, Assistant District Attorney Brian Fuller told The Wilson Post.

Fuller filed a motion to raise the amount of the bonds, but so far no further action has been made.

Carr and Betty were indicted by a Wilson County grand jury on Aug. 13 for first-degree premeditated murder, felony first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, especially aggravated robbery and reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon after the Aug. 10 shooting death of Andre D. Logue and shooting of Justin L. Johnson in Lebanon.

Shortly after the murder and shooting, the men fled to Michigan where they were arrested after being stopped for suspicion of driving under the influence.

Setterlund - firings not on a whim

Wilson County Director of Schools Dr. Tim Setterlund said the recent dismissals of two long-term educators were not decisions I made just on a whim.

While he declined to discuss the specifics behind the dismissal last Thursday of Jill Micco, supervisor of special education, and on Friday of Bill Moss, supervisor of Career Technical Education (CTE), Setterlund said, Part of it is, I have to have a central office staff that shares the same vision that I have for the district and to support that.

Setterlund, who has been on the job since July 1, said it should not come as a surprise to anyone that he may make some changes in the Central Office staff.

FOOTBALL -- MJ hosts Central

It might not be the offensive shoot-out folks were expecting earlier in the season, but anytime Wilson Central and Mt. Juliet get together you can bet sparks will fly. The Golden Bears host Wilson Central tonight at 7 p.m. in a District 9-AAA contest.

Both teams are struggling at the quarterback position. Mt. Juliet (2-2) lost the services of returning starter Nolan Chowbay in the second game of the season to an injured shoulder and has floundered since -- losing 41-3 at Station Camp and 42-14 at home last week to Blackman High. The games marked the first back-to-back losses for the program since 2009.
