Bill Montgomery of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that a 25-year-old Douglas County man was bound over to Fulton Superior Court on felony murder and aggravated assault charges Tuesday in the death of an Atlanta man during a fight Aug. 1 at a KORN concert.

Bond for Michael Scott Axley was set at $40,000, and Judge Richard Hicks ordered him to stay out of Fulton County except to visit his lawyer. Hicks also imposed a dusk curfew and said Axley could not consume alcohol while free on bond.

The victim, 30-year-old Andy Richardson of Atlanta, was attending a concert by KORN at the HiFi Buys Ampitheater.

Atlanta police homicide Detective Brett Zimbrick testified at the hearing that Richardson was knocked to the ground by a punch from Axley, fatally hit his head on the concrete floor at the former Lakewood Ampitheater and was punched twice more as he lay unconscious.

That's a new detail... I don't like it. I mean, I'm all for kicking a man while he's down (especially if you're out to be the one walking away), but punching (or kicking) a man while he's down and already out is a totally different story.

I'm beginning to think this drunk f*** knew what he was doing.
Lynch him.
One less piece of sh** on planet earth, one less piece of sh** our tax dollars have to support while he's serving his term.

this idiot should be behind bars until he's convicted.

and then terminated.

I've changed my mind on the death sentence issue for this guy. i'd rather him breathless.

i agree, he should be terminated. before i was on the ropes about whether to inject this f***er or to just let him rot. but now seeing as he was beating up on a guy he'd already knocked unconcious, there's no question about what to do with him. FRY THE SON OF A b****

heh. thanks lorlor. I don't believe mugshots can really give you much indepth knowledge of a person, but he does have a somewhat recognisable face - a problem for him if he plans on doing a runner. Bet he has NO idea how to change your own appearance, either. Maybe he's JUST smart enough not to run for it. He could yet get away with manslaughter...lol;

"Get away with crucifixion?!! Its - "
" - best thing the Romans ever did for us."
"WHAT?!?!!"
"Oh yes. If we didn't have crucifixion, this country'd be in a right bloody mess!"

sorry, I'm a Python fanatic :P

Remember when I said something about waiting to have all the facts before I thought manslaughter would be a fair judgement....

The Korn Concert Killer (what a title to be stuck with for life) should get murder 1....Hitting someone when they're already on the ground is sh**ty enough, while uncoscious THAT is f***ing evil, twice?.......Fry him.

I dunno about regional laws, but hitting/kicking someone when they're down is "assault w/ intent to maime" as far as I know. Manslaughter or murder doesn't really matter in the end I don't think. Maslaughter + some other charges tacked on could be the same as murder in the end. As long as he gets locked up and is held responsible for his actions.

well i said it once and i'll say it again, what he did was dishonarable. going at a man while he is down and out is unacceptable, sober or not. he deserves more than jail time, how about torture...
