Murtadah Mohammad Indicted for Murder of His Son

Attorney General John M. Formella announces that Murtadah Mohammad, age 25, has been indicted by the Hillsborough County Grand Jury on multiple counts in connection with the death of his son, Jaevion Riley, age 7.

The Hillsborough County Grand Jury has returned indictments charging Mr. Mohammad with one count of second-degree murder, for causing Jaevion’s death recklessly under circumstances manifesting an extreme indifference to the value of his life, by subjecting him to abusive violence and not obtaining timely medical assistance for his injuries.

In addition, the Grand Jury returned indictments charging Mr. Mohammad with multiple counts of assault: two counts of first-degree assault, for knowingly causing serious bodily injury to Jaevion by scalding him with hot liquid and burning him with a hot pan; and two counts of second-degree assault, for knowingly causing bodily injury to Jaevion by whipping him with a cord and striking him in the face.

The murder and assault charges seek extended terms of imprisonment based upon Jaevion’s age and/or the infliction of exceptional cruelty or depravity upon him.

Lastly, Mr. Mohammad was indicted on three counts of falsifying physical evidence: one count for deleting internet data from his cellphone, another count for deleting call history from his cellphone, and the third count for staging a false accident scene.

Mr. Mohammad is being held without bail. The charges against him are accusations, and he is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
