Teen accused in woman's slaying now charged as adult; plea deal on table

After years of confidential negotiations, the teenager accused of killing 23-year-old Zaria McKeever during a 2022 Brooklyn Park home invasion has waived adult certification proceedings, signaling that a tentative plea deal is on the table.

The case now moves from juvenile to adult court, meaning previously sealed court records will be made public. Foday Kamara, 17, of Brooklyn Park is now ordered to stand trial as an adult in connection with the Nov. 8, 2022, deadly break-in he allegedly committed alongside his older brother.

He faces felony charges of aiding and abetting second-degree intentional murder and aiding and abetting second-degree murder while committing first-degree burglary with the use of a firearm.
