Over 80 Bibb County inmates in jail charged with murder, awaiting trail

Ten percent of inmates sitting behind bars at the Bibb County Jail are charged with murder and awaitng trial, according to Sheriff David Davis and Chief Judge Howard Simms. Sheriff Davis calls this "unprecedented." As of Friday evening, Davis says. Davis and Chief Judge Howard Simms say it's higher for a couple different reasons, beginning with the record number of homicides in 2020 -- ending the year with 51. So far this year, 27 people have been charged with murder in Bibb County. On top of that, there's the backlog of court cases because of the pandemic.
