(ABC 6 News) - A new trial date has been scheduled for a Rochester man charged in connection with the 2019 murder of a 28-year-old man.

A mistrial was declared in December 2021 in the trial of Muhidin Abukar, after a week-long trial and just 18 hours of jury deliberations.

Abukar is charged with second-degree murder with intent, aiding and abetting, in the March 5, 2019, murder of 28-year-old Garad Hassan Roble.

A motorist discovered Garad Roble's body on March 5, 2019, on the 2300 block of 4th St. SE in Rochester. He was shot eleven times.
