Fourth person charged in Mercer County homicide

Local News

A fourth person has been charged in connection with the murder of 19-year-old Zackary Cutshall.

Brittany Jewell, 20, of Greenville, was charged with conspiracy for her role in Cutshall’s death.

Cutshall was shot after a drug deal and robbery attempt in rural Mercer County in October 2017.

Two other men, Jacob Barger and Dominic Heasley were originally charged with murder but those charged were dropped. They ended up pleading guilty to conspiracy and robbery charges in exchange or testimony in exchange for testimony against Seth Hamilton, who is scheduled to stand trial in September.

Barger and Heasley will serve up to two years in jail.
