Second suspect arrested in quadruple murder on Renegade Mountain

A second suspect has been arrested in the quadruple homicide that left several teenagers dead in a car on Renegade Mountain last week.

Two suspects in the Cumberland County homicide were indicted today by a grand jury, officials said.

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, according to release from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. Bennett has been in custody since the day of the killings.

Bennett's girlfriend, Brittany Lina Yvonn Moser, 25, of Dayton, Tenn., was with him at the time of the killings and was charged on indictments with the same counts. Moser was taken into custody this morning at her home on Railroad Street in Dayton.

According to investigators, the victims, Rikki Danielle Jacobsen, 22, Domonic Lewis Davis, 17, and Steven Michael Presley, 17, and Jonathan Raymond Lajeunesse, 16, were found shot to death in Jacobsen's vehicle on Renegade Mountain on Sept. 12.

TBI officials say the attempted aggravated robbery charges stem from Bennett and Moser attempting to rob Jacobsen and Davis during a marijuana exchange.

Bennett and Moser will be arraigned today.
