Second arrest made in connection to Harvard killing

A second suspect has been arrested in connection to the fatal shooting that occurred in a Harvard dorm last month. 

Blayn Jiggetts, 19, of Mount Vernon, N.Y., was taken into custody in New York City late Tuesday night and charged with first degree murder in the slaying of 21-year-old Justin Cosby, according to The Associated Press. Jabrai Jordan Copney, 20, was arrested last month and is being held without bail after pleading not guilty.

So far, no Harvard affiliates have been charged in connection with the killing but two seniors — one of whom was Copney’s girlfriend — were ordered off campus by the university and denied diplomas at graduation.
