NASHVILLE- This morning the Cumberland County grand jury handed down indictments against the individuals responsible for the Cumberland County quadruple murder last week after the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office and 13th Judicial District Attorney General’s Office conducted the investigation and presented the evidence to a special session of the grand jury.
Jacob Allen Bennett, 26, of Crab Orchard, Tenn. was indicted on four counts of premeditated murder, four counts of felony murder and two counts of attempted aggravated robbery. He has remained in custody at the Cumberland County Jail since the day after the murders when he was arrested in Rhea County for violating his probation. Bennett’s girlfriend, Brittany Lina Yvonn Moser, 25, of Dayton, Tenn., who was with him at the time of the murders, was indicted on four counts of felony murder and two counts of attempted aggravated robbery. The four victims 22-year-old Rikki Danielle Jacobsen, 17-year-old Domonic Lewis Davis, 17-year-old Steven Michael Presley and 16-year-old Jonathan Raymond Lajeunesse were found shot to death in a Jacobsen’s vehicle on a road on Renegade Mountain on September 12, 2013. The two counts of attempted aggravated robbery stem from Bennett and Moser attempting to rob Jacobsen and Davis during a marijuana exchange.
Moser was arrested this morning at her residence at 1872 Railroad Street in Dayton and will be booked into the Cumberland County Jail. The two are expected to be arraigned in court this morning at 11:30 a.m.
TBI, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, and 13th Judicial District Attorney General’s Office would like to thank the Rhea County Sheriff’s Office, Dayton Police Department and the U.S. Marshal’s Service for their assistance in this investigation.
