New indictments in murder of Temple teenager

Local

The Bell County Grand Jury has indicted three young women on murder charges, and a fourth on a conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery charge in the death of  a Temple man.

Chelsea Swint, Rashari Nae Brent, and Veronica Martin are all accused of shooting and killing Isaac Kohlhaas on December 5th, 2018 in the parking lot of a Temple Walmart.

Jazlyn Miller faces the lesser charge.

Miller and Martin were certified to stand trial as adults by Bell County Court at Law Judge # 3 Rebecca Depew last week.

Authorities arrested Brent in in South Carolina and Swint in Fort Collins, Colorado.

All four are now being held in the Bell County Jail.

Arrest affidavits for Swint and Brent said that a woman interviewed at the hospital where Kohlhaas was taken told them the victim had planned to meet someone at the Walmart to sell them marijuana.

The affidavit also specified that a bag of marijuana was found beneath the victim.

The affidavit said the victim’s Facebook Messenger account was accessed and revealed a conversation between Kohlhaas and someone later identified as one of the female juveniles detained in the case setting up the meeting at the Walmart parking lot.

The affidavit said officers viewed surveillance video obtained at the Walmart and saw the victim’s vehicle pull into a parking spot with a dark colored sedan pulling in at an angle close to his.

Two people were seen getting out of the sedan and getting into the victim’s vehicle, then getting back out and running back to the dark sedan as the victim got out of his car and collapsed.

The affidavit said that the next day,  a juvenile female met voluntarily with police and said another juvenile along with Brent and Swint had talked about setting up a marijuana dealer to be robbed.
