The young man who admitted to killing his 16-year-old ex-girlfriend last year received a life sentence Wednesday in a Fairfax County, Virginia, courtroom, WTOP’s news partners at NBC Washington report.

Back in June, Nebiyu Ebrahim pleaded guilty to strangling Jholie Moussa in January 2018.

Moussa had been missing for two weeks before her body was finally found in a shallow grave near a walking path. That grave in Woodlawn Park was located less than a mile from the victim’s home and not far from Ebrahim’s.

Ebrahim, who was 17 at the time of the murder, had been arrested earlier for assaulting the Mount Vernon High School sophomore.

He later told police that he had flown into a “blind rage” and used a mixed martial arts style chokehold on her.

The victim’s family reportedly applauded when the judge handed down the sentence.

This is a developing story. Stay with WTOP for more details.

Video shows ex-boyfriend confess to killing 16-year-old Fairfax Co. girl

The teenager who pleaded guilty to killing his ex-girlfriend and leaving her body in a Fairfax County, Virginia, park displayed no emotions when describing the murder during a videotaped police interview.

The video, obtained by NBC Washington, shows Nebiyu Ebrahim, 18, calmly describing to police how he killed 16-year-old Jholie Moussa in January 2018.

Erahim, who was 17 at the time of the murder, told police that he started choking Moussa after he flew into a “blind rage.”

Over the course of the five-hour interrogation, the teenager described in great detail how he strangled his ex-girlfriend.

He told police that he used an MMA-style chokehold on Moussa and didn’t stop, even though he knew he could.

Moussa’s body was found two week later after the murder in a shallow grave in Woodlawn Park, less than a mile from her home and walking distance from where Ebrahim lived with his parents.

Ex-boyfriend pleads guilty in murder of 16-year-old Fairfax Co. girl

The teenager accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend and leaving her body in a Fairfax County, Virginia, park pleaded guilty Wednesday to first-degree murder.

Nebiyu Ebrahim was 17 years old when he strangled 16-year-old Jholie Moussa to death in January 2018. Two weeks later, her body was found in a shallow grave in Woodlawn Park, less than a mile from her home and walking distance from where Ebrahim lived with his parents.

Early on, Ebrahim was considered a suspect and was arrested for having previously assaulted Moussa, who was a sophomore at Mount Vernon High School.

Initially, Fairfax County police believed Moussa may have been a runaway, because her twin sister told them the girl said she was running an errand and would be home soon, but later texted that she was going to a party in Norfolk. 

Police didn’t send an Amber Alert, which would have let the entire area know she was in danger.

Last fall, Moussa’s aunt, Veronica Eyenga, told WTOP that learning more about the girl’s killing after Ebrahim was charged didn’t make things any easier.

“We know they had a really, really horrible relationship, but you never envision in a thousand years that someone who says they love you would turn around and just kill you like this,” Eyenga said. “Unfortunately, this is a cycle that we see so many of our young girls falling in, but never in a million years had we imagine that it would hit so close to home.”

Eyenga founded an advocacy group, Not A Runaway Inc., that she said focuses on pushing for alerts to be sent in more missing children cases. It also sponsors teen domestic violence programs.

WTOP’s Teta Alim, Rick Massimo, John Dome, Dan Friedell, Amanda Iacone, Megan Cloherty and Mike Murillo contributed to this report.
