Randy Garrison, an Orrick man charged Thursday with two counts of child abandonment in the first degree, plead not guilty Friday in Eighth Circuit Court in Richmond.

Garrison’s request for bond conditions were denied by Judge James Thompson. His bond currently is $100,000 cash only. Garrison is in custody at Ray County Jail.

“This is something that will not carry a probation-type of penalties,” Thompson told Garrison, who currently does not have counsel.

Garrison’s sons, Roger Garrison, 3, and Ashton Garrison, 1, perished in a fire at their Shach Creek Road home, a rural location north of Orrick, Dec. 10, 2013.

More information will be provided as details become available.
