Two suspects have been indicted on six counts each of first-degree murder in a string of multiple homicides in Lincoln County and Alabama last year.

Henry Lee Burrell, 36, of Fayetteville, TN, and Zakkawanda Zawumba Moss, 35, of New Market, AL, are currently jailed in Alabama on unrelated charges, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The suspects were indicted by the Lincoln County grand jury on Tuesday, according to the TBI.

The investigation began when 3-year-old Vinnie Crutcher called a relative from his mother's cell phone the morning of Oct. 22, 2012, saying his mother and baby brother would not wake up. Family members then went to the Huntsville Highway home and called law enforcement after finding the bodies of 23-year-old Chabreya Campbell, 16-month-old Rashad Obrian Ragland and 21-year-old Amber McCaulley.

Campbell was pregnant at the time of her death, TBI said.

Later, deputies were called to a second, related crime scene at a Fox Wood Drive home in Fayetteville, where 22-year-old Jessica Brown was found murdered. Her two-month-old baby was unharmed.

A person of interest in the investigation, Warren Vincent Crutcher, was then found murdered on a rural road in Alabama just south of the Tennessee state line.

Investigators said Burrell and Warren Crutcher had been working together to deal drugs after meeting while previously jailed. Moss also helped in the drug business, TBI said.

Officials said Burrell and Moss allegedly decided Warren Crutcher was not sharing enough drug money and decided to rob him, and the murders occurred while they were allegedly searching the two homes for drugs and money.

TBI said Warren Crutcher resided at both Fayetteville homes where the victims were found and said he had children with women at both residences.

Officials have not released information on the causes of death.

Two more victims were later found in Madison County, AL, but no charges have been filed in those cases.
