Three Arrested in Monroe Co. Double Homicide

Three people have been arrested and charged with murder in the double-homicide case in Monroe County.

A fourth person has been charged with murder but has not been arrested yet, according to a release.

Sameeria Rikiea Carter, 16, Marquez Deshawn Martin, 19, and Jordan Keaugh Maxwell, 18, all of Macon, have been arrested, according to the Monroe sheriff's department.

They are charged with the murder of Russell Jacobs and James Pittman, who were found dead in their Monroe County home last Tuesday.

The sheriff's department says they are still searching for the fourth suspect, 17-year-old Dave'von Sapp of Macon.

The four are all associated with the gang, Money Over Everything, also known as MOE, the sheriff's department says.

Investigators found the red Ford Ranger truck the victims were riding in broken down near Riverwalk Apartments near Bass Road last Monday evening. They believe the two men parked the truck, and then somehow went to the Marathon gas station. 

The business' surveillance video shows Carter speaking with the two victims and then leaving in Carter's car around 2:50 a.m. Martin, owned the silver Pontiac Torrent, and the other two suspects were riding in the car with Jacobs and Wood.

When they arrived at the Monroe County home, Maxwell asked the victims for something to drink.

They allowed "at least one of the suspects into the home," the release says.

They were then shot in the head, and the suspects left the scene with a TV, a computer and cameras.

13WMAZ spoke with Monroe County Sheriff John Cary Bittick, who says the incident has led him to be concerned about Macon gang violence spilling into Monroe, which has a reputation for low crime.

"I think we need to be looking at some kind of cooperative effort where we can work together to try and combat that," says Bittick.

Anyone with information on Dave'von Sapp can call the Monroe County Sheriff's Office at (478) 994-7043.
