ROCHESTER, Minn. - A new court date is set in a murder case that has twice resulted in a mistrial
A review hearing is scheduled for November 26 at 1:30 pm on whether a third trial should be scheduled for Alexander Weiss, 26 of Rochester. The Olmsted County Attorney's Office says it has made no decision on a third trial yet.
Weiss was charged with 2nd degree murder in January 2018 for the shooting death of 17-year-old Muhammed Rahim. Authorities say Weiss shot Rahim after a car crash. Weiss says he felt threatened by Rahim and acted in self-defense.
Trials in May and October ended in mistrials when jurors could not agree on a unanimous verdict.
