Seward Market killer first in state to reverse rare life-without-parole sentence


The killer of three Minneapolis men who was a teenager when he committed the murders will become the first in Minnesota to successfully fight his rare mandatory ­sentence of life in prison without parole.

On Wednesday, Mahdi Hassan Ali, now 23, is expected to receive a new sentence for one of the killings that would make him eligible for parole after 30 years. But his original punishment for the two other victims was life with parole after 30 years — to be served consecutively, meaning that Ali would be older than 100 before his possible release.
