Teen Pleads Guilty Following Fatal Law Enforcement Chase

Sentencing is scheduled February 6th for a Columbus teen who has pleaded guilty to charges of striking and killing a pedestrian during a high-speed chase last year. 

Ramadhan Muridi pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide, failure to stop after an accident, failure to comply and two counts of receiving stolen property in the death of 61-year-old Arthur Smith. Prosecutors say Muridi was driving a stolen vehicle when he struck Smith while fleeing Franklin County Sheriff's deputies. The chase led the sheriff's office to change its pursuit policy.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
