Jury breaks in 2015 MU rape case trial

COLUMBIA, Mo. - A Boone County jury broke for recess Thursday night without a verdict in the trial of Mohamed Mostafa.

The jury is scheduled to return to the Boone County Courthouse in Columbia on Friday at 9:30 a.m. to resume deliberations.

Mostafa is accused of raping and robbing a woman on the University of Missouri campus near University Hall in May 2015.

According to court documents obtained by ABC 17 KMIZ, Mostafa was arrested in Aug. 2015 after surveillance footage and a DNA test helped investigators identify him as the suspect.

Mostafa has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
