Teen pleads guilty to murder in Everett robbery

EVERETT — A teenager admitted Wednesday that he shot an Everett man to death during a robbery at the victim’s W. Casino Road apartment earlier this year.

Ali Ramadhan, 19, faces at least 20 years in prison when he is sentenced in July.

Ramadhan, who calls himself “Ali Baghdad,” pleaded guilty Wednesday in Snohomish County Superior Court to first-degree murder for the Jan. 21 shooting.

Jeffrey Wehl, 57, died three days after his neighbor found him lying in his kitchen, bleeding from a gunshot wound to the head. Prosecutors alleged that Ramadhan went to the apartment to rob Wehl, who was known to wear and own expensive jewelry.

Kyelee Milner, 18, was with Ramadhan and allegedly told police she went to the apartment to engage in prostitution with the victim. She remains charged with first-degree murder.
