Trial delayed again in six-year-old Youngstown murder case

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

The declaration of another mistrial means that courtroom proceedings in a six year old Mahoning County murder case will start all over again next month.

Just two days after a jury was selected to hear the murder case against thirty-seven-year-old Paul Brown, Judge Maureen Sweeney declared a mistrial.

Brown is accused of murdering 17-year-old Ashten Jackson in 2009.

The mistrial was declared after defense attorneys complained that the prosecution had failed to provide them with video evidence in the case.

Assistant prosecutors said that the defense attorneys were notified of the evidence, but failed to meet with the investigating detective to discuss it.

In 2012, Judge Sweeney declared a mistrial over evidence issues.

The trial was again postponed more than a year later when the judge ordered the production of more evidence.
