CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – State Attorney Angela Corey announced the arrest of four people in connection with the death of Clay County Sheriff's Office Detective David White Monday afternoon.

The four people arrested have been identified as Ryan Wilder, Chasity Prescott, Jennifer Alder and Jerry Daniels.
All four have been charged with first degree murder, attempted second degree murder and trafficking in methamphetamines.
Since the four were involved in the commission of a felony (methamphetamine trafficking) at the time of Detective White's death they were charged with first degree murder.
Detective David White was shot and killed while approaching a home at 4874 Alligator Blvd. in Middleburg at about 6:25 p.m. on February 27, 2012.
White was part of a nine-man team that was looking into a suspected meth lab.
Almost as soon as White went up to the home's door, a man inside opened fire and hit him and another detective.
White was the first Clay County deputy to be killed in the line of duty in nearly 40 years.
White is survived by his wife and two children.
