Miss Savannah Free on Bond

The current reigning Miss Savannah is free on bond this weekend. Savannah-Chatham Police confirmed that 21 year old Sharron Nicole Redmond was released from the Chatham County Detention Center on $25,000 bond Friday night.

Redmond's attorney petitioned the courts to let her out on bail last week, after the beauty queen submitted to a psychological evaluation. Redmond is facing murder charges for the shooting death of her boyfriend, 25 year old Kevin Shorter more than a week ago.

Police say Redmond and Shorter had been arguing outside a house on Rice Mill Lane. Neighbors say it's where Shorter's other girlfriend lived. Redmond's attorney claims his client thought Shorter had a gun and shot him in self defense.

Sharron Nicole Redmond is expected back in court for a preliminary hearing on January 12, 2004.
