Abukar trial rescheduled following mistrial

(ABC 6 News) – A second trial for one of the men charged in the murder of Garad Roble has been scheduled.

33-year-old Muhidin Abukar’s new trial for 2nd-degree murder has been set for May 16.

In December, after a week-long trial and just 18 hours of jury deliberations a mistrial was declared in the trial of Muhidin Abukar.

Abukar and Ayub Iman are both accused of second-degree murder for the March 2019 killing of Roble.

Iman is scheduled to stand trial beginning February 14.
