CINCINNATI -- A murder suspect was found at a former Hamilton County assistant prosecutor's home Monday night, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. The former assistant prosecutor was arrested that night on drug charges.

Allison Hild worked for both the prosecutor’s office and the public defender’s office at different points in her legal career, according to Prosecutor Joe Deters. Hild last worked with the public defender's office in October 2015, according to Vivian Zieverink, executive assistant in that office. 

Hild is charged with three felony counts: two counts of trafficking drugs and one count of possession, according to sheriff's office spokesman Mike Robison. Court records state she had 20 grams of heroin and less than a gram of cocaine. 

Deters said Hild was charged with trafficking cocaine and possession of heroin and arrested Monday night.

Eric Adams

Robison also said Eric Adams, a man arrested and charged with aggravated murder, was found by investigators in Hild's home.

Deputies previously said Adams killed 24-year-old Mahmuud Abdur-Rahman in a drug-related shooting at the Symmes Township Red Roof Inn parking lot.

Police said in court records that Adams assaulted a woman the next day, slamming her onto the street pavement on Winfield Avenue, and that he later stole items from a Westwood apartment. 

Hild posted a $325,000 bond and was released from jail at about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Peter Rosenwald, Hild's attorney, said she didn't know Adams well and had a "friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend kind of relationship" with him. 

Adams' bond was set at $1.5 million. He was being held in the Hamilton County Justice Center.

Robison said updates on this case will be shared delicately, as Hild's arrest is part of an ongoing narcotics investigation.
