Special agents from the TBI have arrested and charged a Rutherford County man accused of killing two people and injuring a third in a Cannon County incident last weekend.
Robert Jesse Mount, 36, was arrested Friday and faces two charges of murder.
At the request of 16th District Attorney General Jennings Jones, TBI agents began investigating an incident that occurred last Saturday, Jan. 14 on Choctaw Drive in Woodbury. There, authorities discovered the body of David Wooten, 42, deceased from an apparent gunshot wound.
Two women also sustained injuries in the incident: Elizabeth Clement, 19, and Laura Jastre, 28. Despite medical treatment, Clement died from her injuries. Jastre continues to recover at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Law enforcement authorities are not revealing how the two women were injured. However, they have said the injuries do not appear like they were inflicted with a gun.
During the course of the investigation, agents developed information leading to Robert Jesse Mount as the individual responsible. Agents arrested Mount, 36, and charged him with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted first-degree murder.
Mount is being held at Cannon County Jail without bond. The investigation into this incident remains active, with the assistance of the Rutherford and Cannon County sheriff’s departments.
