Suspect accused of killing Purdue student enters not guilty plea
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Purdue University student charged with murder won't be getting out of jail anytime soon.
Handcuffed in a blue jail jumpsuit, 23-year-old Cody Cousins stood before a judge and entered a not-guilty plea.
Cousins is charged with murdering 21-year-old Andrew Boldt on the West Lafayette campus. Court documents reveal Boldt was shot and stabbed inside the electrical engineering building on Tuesday.
The charging document says several other people were in the classroom and witnessed the attack, but it doesn't give any possible motive for what happened.
Police say an officer spotted Cousins with blood on his hands and clothes soon after the attack and arrested him without incident.
Boldt's funeral is scheduled for Tuesday in his Wisconsin hometown.
Cousins is being held without bond until his trial, which has been scheduled for April.
