Robbery plot by former ETSU students turns deadly

KNOXVILLE — If these two college kids had any doubt their plan to rob a teenage pill dealer of his stash was a bad one, their accomplice proved quick to assuage their concerns.

"(Dashawnta Murphy) was adamant nothing bad could happen," former East Tennessee State University student Megan Turner testified Monday in Knox County Criminal Court.

"We thought he might be an easy target to rob," former ETSU student Chelsea Garrett added of intended victim Daniel Pagan, then a 19-year-old newbie at peddling prescription painkillers.
