Accomplice in Jack in the Box homicide pleads guilty

Kodi Anderson accepted the consequences for his role in an incident that left Raul Cuadros, 19, dead.

EVERETT — A guilty plea was entered Monday for one of the four men charged in connection with a February shooting at a Jack in the Box restaurant that left one person dead.

Kodi O. Anderson, 27, originally charged with first-degree murder, pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree robbery for his role in a planned theft that preceded the gunfire.

Raul Cuadros, 19, of Bothell, died from a gunshot to the chest.

Cuadros and an Everett woman, 27, allegedly arranged a drug deal with Christopher Phelps, a friend of Anderson’s, in the early morning hours of Feb. 17 at the fast-food restaurant on the 8500 block of Evergreen Way, according to police documents.

The pair allegedly arrived with the intention of robbing Phelps, but were instead met by Anderson and another man, David Wright, 31. The two men planned to rob the woman and Cuadros as payback, Anderson told police.

Anderson said he was robbed at a motel days earlier and that the woman had arranged it.

The woman and Cuadros abandoned their plan and started to leave after seeing Anderson and Wright, but the men followed and a confrontation ensued, court papers said.

The woman fired pepper spray that missed and hit Anderson in the head. That’s when, according to statements to police and video surveillance, Wright fired at Cuadros, court papers said.

As Anderson and Wright fled, Cuadros fell to the ground.

Wright and Phelps both face charges of first-degree murder with a deadly weapon and are scheduled to face trial later this year.

The alleged getaway driver, Raymond Tannehill, 28, is charged with first-degree murder. He is expected to enter a plea later this week.

Anderson has a history of misdemeanors and pleaded guilty last year to seven felony counts surrounding a string of robberies in Okanogan County.

Anderson is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 4.
