Salisbury man sentenced to 60 years for murder

1280 Drequan Savage

SALISBURY, Md. – A Salisbury man has been sentenced to a total of 60 years behind bars for the 2021 murder of Gerald Nash.

During the early morning hours of April 7, 2021, an assailant acting at the direction of Drequan Savage entered a residence on Hill Street in Salisbury through the rear door. Savage had previously arranged with a second co-conspirator to be notified when Nash arrived at the residence, and for the rear door to be left unlocked. Once inside, the assailant went into a bedroom and shot Nash multiple times while he laid in bed.

Nash was taken to TidalHealth where he later died as a result of the gunshot wounds.

Savage was convicted back in September of second degree murder, first degree assault, and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
