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 indicted 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.
