MOORESVILLE — Two people have been arrested more than a year after an Indianapolis man was found shot to death along a road in Mooresville.

Morgan County Sheriff Rich Myers said in a news release Justin M. Blake, 19, and Britney D. Overton, 26, both of Indianapolis, were arrested after warrants were issued Sept. 29 as part of an investigation into the death of Alexander Dashiell Jackson, 23.

On Sept. 13, 2019, a woman walking her dogs found Jackson's body in a wooded area off the roadway in the 11000 block of North Mann Road.

Myers said Blake and Overton were arrested without incident in Indianapolis with help from the United States Marshals Office and deputies from the Marion and Morgan County Sheriff's Office.
