Report reveals what led to death of Clay County 18-year-old

Murder suspect pleads "not guilty"

CLAY COUNTY, Fla. — An affidavit for arrest warrant shows what led up to the death of Kolton Shearer in Clay County.

The report obtained by Action News Jax said Jordan Coleman told Alexandra Schreffler to find someone on Facebook he could rob. The report said she contacted Kolton Shearer because he was known to have drugs and would be an "easy target".

Shearer arrived at the Green Cove Springs home in July with two friends, when deputies said they were attacked by Coleman and two others. Kolton was shot and killed, another was hurt and the other victim was unharmed.

Deputies arrested Coleman, 20, and Schreffler, 21, along with Taurean Johnson, 28, and Ozell McNabb Jr., 22.

The warrant specifically said Schreffler never got out of the home during the incident.

It is not known who fired the shot that killed Shearer. All four face robbery and second-degree murder charges.

Three of the four suspects were arraigned Friday morning in Clay County court.  Schreffler pleaded not guilty to all counts. She is expected back in court on Sept. 7. Johnson and McNabb Jr. waived their appearances  and pleaded not guilty. Both are scheduled to be back in court on Sept. 6. Coleman pleaded not guilty.
