Last Suspect in the December 2020 Killing of Jaylin Everett Behind Bars

Angelina Marie Plemons Booked Into Coweta County Jail

Angelina Marie Plemons, 19, of Columbus is the 4th and final suspect to begin their sentence for their role in the December 2020 murder of Jaylin Everett in the parking lot of Jefferson Grove Apartments.

Plemons was booked on the 11th and will begin serving her sentence of 15 years in the care of the Georgia Department of Corrections. She will have to serve 5 years of probation upon her release.

Plemons was identified as the getaway driver the night that 22-year-old Jaylin Everett returned home after picking up his girlfriend from work, only to be the victim of an armed robbery turned murder.

Plemons and another suspect, David Alberto Berrio, both plead to lesser charges in return for testifying against the two main actors during the murder. Plemons ended up pleading guilty to Involuntary Manslaughter, Entering an Auto, and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony.

Her plea was entered the same day as her booking.

Other Suspects Already In Prison

David Alberto Berrio, also of Columbus, was charged with 2 counts of Aggravated Assault, a count of Criminal Attempt to Commit Entering Auto, and Possession of a Firearm during the Commission of a Felony under his negotiated plea. He was sentenced to a total of 40 years, with 25 to be served in confinement. 

His plea was entered on September 27th and he started serving his sentence on October 11th at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification State Prison in Jackson, GA.

The other two suspects, Mikelle Howard Harrison, and Cody Lamar Mercer were both found guilty at the conclusion of their August 2022 trial.

Harrison,23, who was shown to be the trigger man, was found guilty of Malice Murder, Criminal Attempt to Commit Entering Auto, Criminal Attempt to Commit Armed Robbery, and Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony. He was sentenced to Life without the chance of Parole, plus 37 1/2 years.

Harrison, interestingly, currently resides in the Thumb Correctional Facility in Lapeer, Michigan for a July 2021 incident that saw him charged with the charges of Police Officer – Assault/Resist/Obstruct Causing Injury, Weapons – Carrying Concealed, Police Officer – Fleeing – Third Degree, and Weapons – Felony Firearms. 

It appears he was actually on the run from doing his jail time for these charges when the murder occurred. In October of 2021, he pleaded NOLO and was sentenced to anywhere from 3 to 7 years. He will remain in Michigan’s prison until his release, which at the earliest will be July 2024 to the latest July of 2028, at which time he will be remanded to the Georgia DOC to serve the remainder of his life in one of our state prisons.

Booking records in Muscogee County, GA show that in January of 2019 Howard was arrested and charged with 2 counts of Armed Robbery and 1 count of Possession of a Firearm or Knife During the Commission of a Crime. Oddly, while the booking is showing, we can’t find any associated court records showing that he was ever tried, or sentenced, on these charges.

And finally, according to a March 2019 news article in the Albany Herald, in Albany, GA, Harrison was at that time an Albany Area Crime Stoppers Most Wanted Fugitive with active warrants for Carrying a Weapon within a School Safety Zone and possession of marijuana, under an ounce. A quick check shows that while the charges have been dead-docketed, the warrants are still active.

The final suspect and second main actor in the robbery and murder, Cody Lamar Mercer, 20, was found guilty of Malice Murder, Criminal Attempt to Commit Entering Auto, Criminal Attempt to Commit Armed Robbery, and Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony. He was sentenced to Life, with the possibility of parole, plus 5 years.

Mercer started his sentence on September 9th and is also currently located at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification State Prison in Jackson, GA.

According to Court Records, both Harrison and Mercer have motioned the court for new trials.
