Wedding reception murder suspect denied bond

- The teenager charged with shooting and killing a man outside a wedding reception will remain in jail, and the family of the victim is determined to see the accused killer stay locked up. 

Jayden Myrick went before a Fulton County judge on Tuesday trying to get an  $80,000 bond.

Authorities say Myrick was just across from Brookhaven's Capitol City Club one late weekend night in July looking for cars to break into.

Soon after he and another young person arrived, investigators say Christian Broder and three others left a wedding reception and waited for an Uber.

That's when police say the gun-toting Myrick approached the group and demanded the belongings of the partygoers.

Charlie Broder, Christian's father, recounted to the judge how his son got shot that night. He asked for the bond request be denied.

"He is a danger to society," Broder said. "He terrorized and robbed four individuals and then killed my son Christian."

Assistant D.A. Ryan Piechocinski, the prosecuter handling the case, added that Myrick posed a threat of intimidation if he were to be let out.

Piechocinski told the court Myrick is on recorded jail calls making threats.

"He is on jail calls talking to gang members. He's also been calling people 'snitches,'" Piechocinski said.

Myrick did not get a bond and was lead away for the trip back to the Fulton County Jail.
