Couple charged in quadruple murder to be tried separately
News


A man and woman will be tried separately for their alleged roles in the murder of four people in Cumberland County.

Jacob Bennett of Crab Orchard and his girlfriend, Brittany Lina Yvonne Moser, of Dayton, were charged with four counts of felony murder and two counts of attempted aggravated robbery.

According to the Cumberland County Criminal Court Clerk's office, a judge ruled last week that Bennett and Moser would be tried separately. Though they face the same charges, prosecutors believe that Bennett was the shooter.

The bodies of Danielle Rikki Jacobsen, 22, Domonic Davis, 17, Steven Presley, 17, and John Lajeunesse, 16, all of Cumberland County were found in a car on Renegade Mountain. All four had been shot.

Investigators believe the four were killed after a botched marijuana deal.

Bennett and Moser are scheduled to be back in court for a hearing on November 12.
