The trial of one of the men accused of being involved in the killing
of a Columbus imam ended this week in a mistrial when a Franklin County jury couldn’t reach a verdict
Isaiah Brown-Miller was indicte
d on charges of aggravated robbery and kidnapping in connection to the December 2021 shooting death of Mohamed Hassan Adam, an imam in Central Ohio’s Muslim community. His body was found inside a van off Joyce and Windsor Avenues.
Adam was a longtime imam at the Masjid Abu Hurairah mosque on the Northeast Side. He was also a well-known leader in the local Somali community.
County prosecutors are reviewing the case to determine their next steps.
Co-defendant John Wooden Jr. is facing numerous charges
, including aggravated murder. He is scheduled to go on trial in March.
Both men have pleaded not guilty to the charges.
