Man pleads guilty in 2013 Roosevelt Blvd. deaths of mom, 3 kids -

A 32-year-old man who was reportedly racing another driver on Roosevelt Boulevard two years ago when the other driver allegedly hit and killed a mother and three of her kids who were crossing the Boulevard pleaded guilty in court Monday. Ahmen Holloman pleaded guilty to four counts of vehicular homicide instead of facing a jury trial. As part of a deal negotiated by his attorney, Lonny Fish, and Assistant District Attorney Thomas Lipscomb, Holloman was then sentenced to five to 10 years in state prison by Common Pleas Judge Steven Geroff. The driver who allegedly hit the four victims, Khusen Akhmedov, now 24, is expected to face trial this week before a jury on charges of third-degree murder, homicide by vehicle, involuntary manslaughter and related offenses. It was about 10:30 p. m. July 16, 2013 when Samara Banks, 27, and her children were crossing the Boulevard near 2nd Street, in Olney, when Akhmedov, driving a silver Audi S4 in an inner, southbound lane of the Boulevard, allegedly struck and... Saa'deem Griffin, 4. and Saa'yon Griffin, 5. The oldest child miraculously survived the tragedy unhurt. Witnesses reported seeing the Audi and Honda racing each other on the Boulevard at a high rate of speed, Lipscomb told the judge. The prosecutor said Holloman's car was determined to be "adapted for racing. Holloman disagreed that his car had been adapted for racing. Source:
