Second man pleads guilty in fatal Jefferson County shooting

Tayjuhn Coble

CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. — A second man charged in 2016 shooting in a Charles Town subdivision has entered a plea agreement in the case.

Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney Matt Harvey told WV Metronews affiliate WEPM Tayjuhn Coble, 19, of Ranson, pleaded no contest Tuesday to one count of first-degree robbery in connection with the shooting death of 21-year-old Ryan Mumaw.

Less than a week ago Braden Fitzgerald, 18, of Charles Town, also pled guilty to first-degree robbery in connection with the case.

Coble faces a maximum of 15 years in prison as part of a binding plea agreement when he is sentenced Oct. 16.

Fitzgerald is expected to be sentenced to 20 years in prison on Sept. 18.

Both will be required to testify against codefendants co-defendants Malakye Boyd, 18, and Rakeem Newman, 21 who were set to go to trial Aug. 14.

Both face murder and other charges in connection with the July 19, 2016 incident that involved the purchase of a large amount of marijuana and robbery.
