DNA Database Match Leads to Arrest in 2015 Jenkins County Murder

A DNA profile connected the missing dots in a murder in Jenkins County dating back to 2015.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation arrested Teresa Kim Mobley, 53, of Millen Georgia on Wednesday, November 17. She has been charged with the stabbing death of Kenith Scott of Millen. Scott, who was 52 years old at the time of his death, was found stabbed in his apartment in June 2015.

Mobley was booked into the Jenkins County Jail.


The GBI said Wednesday that evidence recovered at the scene was successfully processed by the GBI crime lab for DNA. The DNA profile was entered into the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS) and a match was made to Mobley’s profile. Mobley’s DNA profile was recently entered into CODIS based on being sentenced to probation for a previous conviction. The relationship between Mobley and Scott is still under investigation.

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the GBI at 912-871-1121. 

Mobley was booked into the Jenkins County Jail.
