Auburn freshman Jakell Mitchell killed in shooting; police searching for suspect http://ow.ly/FRemc

Quote
Auburn freshman football player Jakell Mitchell was shot and killed early Sunday morning at an apartment complex near the Auburn University campus.

The Auburn Police Department is investigating and developing leads as it searches for a suspect.

Police responded to the Tiger Lodge apartment complex at 12:25 a.m., where Mitchell suffered a fatal injury, Auburn police Capt. Will Matthews told AL.com.

Mitchell was rushed to East Alabama Medical Center by ambulance with multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Lee County Coroner's Office. He died shortly after arriving at the emergency room. The death is being treated as a homicide.

Mitchell redshirted this season for the Auburn Tigers out of nearby Opelika.

The shooting early Sunday occurred at the same apartment complex Desmonte Leonard killed three men, including former Auburn players Ed Christian and Ladarious Phillips, at a party in the summer of 2012.

Auburn Police Department is looking for info related to the incident.

Not good.  Its easy to blame the apt. complex as bad news...it is.  But, I hope this wakes up the players and coaches about being the right places and avoid these types of parties.  The event in 2012 turned out to be an angry boyfriend driving in from Montgomery...all signs are pointing to a similar event this time.  This is Gus's first time as the HC for an event like this....I hope he handles it correctly.

The murder trial for the man charged with the murder of former Auburn H-back Jakell Mitchell has been delayed.

Jury selection for the trial of Markale Hart was set to begin Monday morning in Opelika but the trial was delayed due to conflicts with other cases set for trial. According to Alacourt.com, five murder trials and three attempted murder trials were on the docket for Monday morning at the Lee County Courthouse.

A reset date for the trial has yet to be announced.

"There's no date right now," said Jerry Blevins, Hart's attorney. "It won't be tried this term. My guess is it will be set for next term, whenever that is.... It will be reset.... Just got other cases, I believe, that were older that are taking precedent."

The next criminal trial term in Lee County begins Sept. 25.

Hart is charged with the shooting death of Mitchell on Dec. 14, 2014 at the Tiger Lodge at Auburn apartment complex on West Longleaf Drive in Auburn. Hart admitted last year in testimony during an immunity hearing that he shot Mitchell, though he claimed it was in self-defense and that Mitchell was the aggressor in the incident and was the first to pull a weapon that night during an off-campus party. At the time, Hart sought to have the charges dropped based on Alabama's Stand Your Grand law but was denied immunity.

The murder trial for the man charged with the murder of former Auburn H-back Jakell Mitchell over two and a half years ago has been continued until September.

An order signed by Lee County Circuit Court judge Christopher Hughes on Thursday reset the trial for Markale Hart for the week of Sept. 25, when the next criminal trial term is to begin.

Jury selection for Hart's trial was to begin June 12 but the trial was delayed due to conflicts with other cases.

Hart is charged with the murder of Mitchell after a fatal shooting at the Tiger Lodge at Auburn apartment complex in Auburn on Dec. 14, 2014. During testimony at an immunity hearing last year, Hart admitted that he shot Mitchell but claimed it was in self-defense and that Mitchell was the aggressor and the first to pull a weapon during the off-campus party. At the time, Hart sought to have the charges dropped based on Alabama's Stand Your Ground law but was denied immunity.

Hart can still claim self-defense during the murder trial, which was initially set to begin Dec. 5 of last year but Hart was granted a continuance because a witness for the defense was on active duty with the Alabama National Guard and stationed in Kuwait...

Man who killed Auburn football player granted continuance for unrelated DUI, stolen gun charges



Quote
The preliminary hearing for the man awaiting trial for murder in the 2014 shooting death of an Auburn football player on unrelated charges of receiving stolen property, a stolen gun and driving under the influence has been delayed.

Markale Deandre Hart was due to appear in Tallapoosa County Circuit Court in Dadeville for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday afternoon but was granted a continuance until Oct. 10, according to court documents.

Hart was released on bond for the murder charge when he was arrested in Dadeville on Feb. 26. His bond was later revoked and he remains in jail awaiting the murder trial for the Dec. 2014 shooting death of Auburn H-back Jakell Mitchell on Sept. 25 in Lee County.

Dadeville police reported Hart blew a .16 on the breathalyzer test, which is twice the legal limit, and failed a field sobriety test after they pulled him over on the evening of Feb. 26. Hart, who previously was convicted of burglary in Tallapoosa County, was charged with DUI and police searched his vehicle and found a pistol, which was reported stolen.

During testimony at an immunity hearing on the murder charge last year, Hart admitted he shot Mitchell, but claimed it was in self-defense and that Mitchell was the aggressor and first to pull a weapon during a confrontation at the off-campus party in 2014. Hart sought to have the charges dropped based on Alabama's Stand Your Ground law...
