Woman arrested for role in shooting death at Memphis home, U.S. Marshals say

Memphis, Tenn. — Almost a year after her alleged role in a Memphis murder, a woman is behind bars.

According to the U.S. Marshals office, Jasmine Carey was arrested for her part in a shooting death that happened on Eyers Rd. in September of 2020.

On September 11, Memphis Police said they responded to a shooting call on Eyers Rd. to find Decoricus Owens dead, shot several times in his neck.

When Carey was questioned about the shooting, she told police that she drove the car used in the murder and even accepted money for her part in the crime, according to a police affidavit.

Almost a year after that fateful day, the U.S. Marshals tracked Carey to Helena-West Helena, Arkansas where she was arrested.

Carey faces one count of first-degree murder (facilitation of a felony).
