Defendant: Mshulla Langston Jeter

Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said, “This teenager is the fourth suspect to be indicted in a deadly home invasion and was the suspect who inflicted the fatal stab wounds to the victim.”  Prosecutor Ron O’Brien announces that the Franklin County Grand Jury has returned an indictment against Mshulla Langston Jeter, age 19, for two counts of Murder and one count of Aggravated Burglary, for a total of three counts.  The indictment alleges that on February 13, 2017, Jeter was involved in a home invasion that resulted in the stabbing death of Meshach Sir King Orton, age 20.  Three other co-defendants already indicted in the crime who have plead guilty and are awaiting sentencing are Jasmyne N. Pritchett/age 21, David E. Silver, Jr./age 23, and Martez M. Bryant/age 22.  The incident stemmed from an argument that the victim had with Pritchett, his off and on-again girlfriend.  Pritchett recruited Jeter, Bryant, and Silver to go over to the victim’s apartment to beat him up and to teach him a lesson.  Pritchett, Bryant, and Silver have plead guilty to Involuntary Manslaughter, and Bryant and Silver also plead guilty to Aggravated Burglary.  They are scheduled to be sentenced next week.  Jeter, who was 17 at the time of the murder, was initially charged in Juvenile Court with delinquency counts of Murder and Aggravated Burglary and was bound over to Common Pleas Court on January 3rd, 2019.  Arraignment for Jeter will be Monday afternoon, January 14th, 2019 at 1:30 pm in courtroom 2B at 345 S. High Street in downtown Columbus.
