Two people indicted for Renegade killings


CROSSVILLE — A Cumberland County grand jury Friday morning indicted two people on four counts of murder for the killings of four people whose bodies were found shot to death last Thursday on Renegade Mountain.

The Cumberland County grand jury met in a special session Friday, Sept. 20 and returned four counts of premeditated murder, four counts of felony murder and two counts of attempted aggravated robbery against Jacob Allen Bennett, 26, of the Renegade Mountain community.

Bennett’s girlfriend, Brittany Lina Yvonn Moser, 25, of Dayton, TN, was also indicted. Moser was with Bennett at the time of the shootings, according to TBI spokeswoman Kristin Helm.

Moser was indicted on four counts of felony murder and two counts of attempted aggravated robbery.

In a news release, the TBI stated two counts of attempted aggravated robbery were charged against Bennett and Moser for attempting to rob Jacobsen and Davis during a marijuana exchange.

Bennett has been in custody at the Cumberland County Jail since last Friday, Sept. 13, when he was arrested in Rhea County for violation of probation.

Rikki Danielle Jacobsen, 22, Domonic Lewis Davis, 17, Steven Michael Presley, 17, and Jonathan Raymond Lajeunesse, 16, were found shot to death in Jacobsen’s vehicle on Renegade Mountain early morning of Sept. 12.

Moser was arrested Friday morning at her residence at 1872 Railroad St. in Dayton and held at the Cumberland County Jail.

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.
