Wednesday, August 24, 2011

The three young people from Smyrna who were allegedly caught stealing items from a home on Kenny Nelson Road on May 8 were indicted by the Marshall County Grand Jury last week.

Mariah Janee McCutcheon, 21, and Jacobi Vaughn Moore, 18, are both charged with aggravated burglary and theft.

McCutcheon was also charged with two counts of aggravated assault because she allegedly drew a handgun and threatened the homeowner and her father with it. According to a press release from the Marshall County Sheriff's Department, the homeowner caught two people coming out of the house, and one of them was carrying her television. When confronted, the suspect carrying the TV dropped it and ran, while the other (McCutcheon) drew a gun on the woman and her father and walked to a waiting car.

The alleged driver of that car, Kiara Tashawn King, 21, was indicted on charges of aggravated burglary and theft. According to the warrant sworn by Lewisburg Police Detective Jimmy Oliver, "King did commit aggravated burglary by being an accessory ... by being the driver of the get-away vehicle. (She took) three subjects to a residence to commit a burglary, which they did commit, and fled the scene with them."

King is represented by Shelbyville attorney Forest A. Durard Jr. Mc-Cutcheon is represented by Martha Durocher of Lewisburg, and David McKenzie was appointed to represent Moore. Moore remains jailed, while the two women made bond the day after being arrested. A juvenile, whose name has not been released, was also in the car, according to the Sheriff's Department.

In breaking in, Shelton allegedly did more that $500-worth of damage to windows and screens. In a separate indictment, Shelton was charged with possession of drugs in a penal institution.
