CROSSVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Prosecutors intend to seek the death penalty against Jacob Bennett, the man charged in the quadruple killings on Renegade Mountain last month.
On Thursday, Bennett and Brittany Moser returned to a Cumberland Co. courtroom to answer for charges stemming from the deaths of three teens and a young woman.
They originally faced a judge about two weeks ago. Bennett tried to plead guilty, but the judge rejected the plea because he didn't have a lawyer. Moser was able to enter a not guilty plea.
On September 12, police found the bodies of Rikki Jacobsen, Jon Lajeunesse, Steven Presley, and Domonic Davis in a car on Renegade Mountain.
According to the TBI, the car was found on Thursday near an abandoned guard shack at a resort community about 50 miles west of Knoxville.
