Mistrial declared in 18-year-old cold case

A mistrial was declared this afternoon in an 18-year-old murder case in San Mateo County Superior Court after the defendant’s previous record was revealed, according to a court spokeswoman.

Mohammed Monie, 39, is accused of ordering then 14-year-old Jesse “Dudley” Rodriguez on April 29, 1989, to shoot their associate Robert “Bobby” Perruquet, of Daly City — allegedly to steal his car, according to the San Mateo County district attorney’s office.

Though Perruquet’s body was never located, blood found in his car led Daly City police to determine he had been murdered.

Due to his age and existing law at the time of the murder, Rodriguez cannot be charged.

Monie, who was arrested in June 2005, faces charges of murder in the commission of a robbery that could bring the possibility of life in prison without parole if he is convicted.

According to court clerk Leslie Wise, “Nothing was dismissed from the trial so there will be no need to re-file,” said.

The trial is going to be reset to Tuesday in Department 11, at which point a new start date for the trial will be set, according to Wise.
