Jury finds woman not guilty of murder, hung on drug ring involvement


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Mahoning County grand jury has reached a verdict in the case of an accused female gang member reportedly involved in the illegal drug trade.

Nahdia Baker faced over a dozen charges, and on most of them — including attempted murder — the jury said she was not guilty.

Deliberations began at 4:30 p.m. Friday and the verdict was reached just after 9 p.m.

On several other charges, including engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity, there was a hung jury.

Prosecutors will decide next week if she will be retried on those charges.

Prosecutors say Baker drove the car used in a drive-by shooting and set fire to a house and a car in Youngstown.

She is supposedly the last member of a violent drug gang to to be indicted.
