Alhusaine Drammeh, 18, from Federal Way, and Jonathan Montejano, 19, from Kent, both pleaded not guilty to murder on Monday.
FEDERAL WAY, Wash. – The King County prosecutor’s office says two teenagers are in custody and charged with killing a man during a carjacking in Federal Way.
Alhusaine Drammeh, 18, from Federal Way, and Jonathan Montejano, 19, from Kent, both pleaded not guilty to murder on Monday. Prosecutors said the pair spent the past month robbing and stealing from people.
One case happened in Kent on October 15. When a couple returned home, they quickly slammed the front door and locked it when they realized a man was behind them. Surveillance video shows the man trying to break into the house. He was armed with a gun and even tried to disrupt the family’s surveillance camera when he realized it was there. According to investigators, it was Alhusaine Drammah.
Ten days later, Drammeh teamed up with Montejano to commit a carjacking in Federal Way, police said. On October 25, a man who stopped at an auto parts store was robbed at gunpoint. Court documents say that when the victim tried to defend himself from the robbery, Drrammeh and Montejano opened fire on the victim, killing him in front of the car door. The victim, Robert Blowe III, died from a gunshot wound to the chest.
This month, Drammah and Montejano were charged with murder. The next court date is the arraignment date. It is scheduled for November 27.
