The case against a woman suspected of participating in a 2009 jewelry-store robbery was dismissed Tuesday, but her three co-defendants are due in court next month on felony charges. Keyessence Fountain had been charged in connection with an armed robbery Sept. 23, 2009, at Jayson Jewelers on N. Kingshighway. The other three defendants -- Kevin Stitt of Nashville, Tenn.; Darryl House of Memphis, Tenn.; and Charla Hubbard-Dinkins of Memphis -- are set to appear in court Oct. 9 on charges of first-degree robbery and armed criminal action in connection with the case. House's case is set for a jury trial Oct. 9, while the others are scheduled for case reviews. All three are set to appear before Judge Joe Satterfield. In May 2012, DNA evidence connected Stitt to the robbery, and he admitted that he and three other people -- a man and two women -- came from Memphis to Cape Girardeau to rob a jewelry store.
