Three Washington Men Arrested for Killing Man in Portland Area Nearly Six Years Ago
(Portland, OR) -- Three Washington state men who went to Gresham in 2016 with intent to commit robbery will spend over 75 years in prison, combined. Charles Moi Moi, Rony Celis, and Clayton Harrell of Seattle have pleaded guilty to robbing Ravel Sterling as he was walking to a store. After the robbery, they shot him multiple times--ultimately killing him. Sterling was a musician who is believed to have simply been in the wrong place a the wrong time.
The three suspects were then involved in a police pursuit that spanned over 100 miles, and face prosecution for crimes committed in Washington.
