Arrests Made In Murder Of Veronans’ Nephew
The Prosecutor’s Office said that Ali Muhammad Brown, 29, of Seattle, a registered sex offender, has been charged with murder, felony murder, robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and unlawful possession of a weapon.
According to Murray, Tevlin was stopped at a stoplight in West Orange when he was surrounded by the suspects. At that point, she said, “He was the simple victim of an intent to rob.” Murray said that Brown allegedly shot at Tevlin 10 times. While the other suspects fled on foot, Brown entered the car, moved Tevlin’s body to the passenger seat and drove it to the parking lot of the apartment complex. He then allegedly took personal items and fled.
Also charged in connection with the Tevlin murder are Jeremy Villagran, 19 and Eric Williams, 18, both of West Orange. Both men have been charged with felony murder, robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose and unlawful possession of a weapon.
Tevlin, a 19-year-old college student from Livingston, was shot multiple times at the intersection of Northfield and Walker avenues in West Orange on Wednesday, June 25, just before midnight. Villagran is a resident of the apartment complex where Tevlin’s body was found.Brown is being held on bail pending extradition to Washington, where he was wanted in connection with a murder investigation. Murray said the Brown had some ties to New Jersey but did not elaborate.
Tevlin’s family, including his aunt and uncle in Verona, Kathleen Tevlin Nulty and Thomas Tevlin, had been working to expand awareness of the case and reward money for information that could lead to arrests.
