CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Tenn. - There are new developments in the quadruple murder case out of Cumberland county.

Police took custody of 26-year-old Jacob Allen Bennett last Friday. He's expected to be indicted this week for the shooting deaths of Danielle Jacobsen, Steven Presley, Dominic Davis and John Lajeunesse.

The victims were all found shot multiple times with a handgun. The motive appears to be robbery. Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwynn has not ruled out the possibility of it being drug related.

Bennett likely knew the victims and may have had a personal connection with one of them. Danielle Jacobsen had a 4-year-old child, and the district attorney may do a DNA test to see if Bennett is the father.

Bennett was surprised when police picked him up and has not asked why he was taken into custody.  He's spoken very little. He's being held in the Cumberland County Jail without bond.

Police do not have a murder weapon, but there are indications there may be an accomplice or witness to what happened.

The District Attorney said if Bennett is indicted he will consider the death penalty.
