Retrial Ends With Conviction In NY College Student’s Slaying
ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) — A New York man has been found guilty of fatally stabbing a college student during a fight after a party on the Cornell University campus last year.
The jury in 24-year-old Nagee Green's second trial convicted him Thursday of a murder charge for killing 19-year-old Anthony Nazaire, of New York City, in late August 2016.
Green's initial trial in Ithaca last June ended with him convicted of assault but jurors couldn't reach a decision on murder charges.
Authorities say Green, from nearby Freeville, attacked Nazaire and his Ithaca College classmate after the classmate bumped into a woman after a party on Aug. 28, 2016, setting off fights that led to both students being stabbed.
The classmate survived, but Nazaire later died of his injuries at a hospital.
Green faces sentencing Nov. 6.
