Five charged in Elliot Park murder

Body: 

Five men face second-degree murder charges in connection with the murder of a 32-year-old Elliot Park woman in her apartment in November -- the first homicide in the state connected to the drug khat -- a Kenyan plant that is chewed for its stimulating effect -- according to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office.

Yasmin Ali Geele was shot in the head Nov. 9 after the men allegedly tried to rob her in her apartment at the Adams Apartments, 500 S. 10th St., according to the criminal complaint filed Nov. 29.
