LINCOLN COUNTY, Tenn. (WHNT) – Jury selection is starting today for Zakkawanda Zawumba Moss, one of two men charged in a string of murders that happened a year ago in Lincoln and Madison counties.
Moss, 35, of New Market, Ala. is charged with six counts of first-degree murder. He has pleaded not guilty.
Henry Lee Burrell, 36, of Fayetteville, Tenn. is also charged in the case and will be tried separately.
Moss and Burrell are charged with the murders of Amber McCaulley, Chabreya Campbell and her unborn child, and Campbell’s 1-year-old son, Rashad Ragland. They were found dead in a home in Lincoln County on October 22, 2012. That same evening, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office responded to 4 Fox Wood Drive in Fayetteville and found the body of Jessica Leigh Brown, 22. Her 2-month-old baby was not harmed.
Warren Vincent Crutcher, 24, was found dead the next day in Hazel Green. He lived at both Fayetteville homes where the Tennessee victims were because he had children with Campbell and Brown.
Jury panelling is expected to last through Friday.
