Ithaca police report the arrest of a man from Freeville for the fatal stabbing of an Ithaca College student at Cornell University on August 28.
Anthony Nazaire, 19, died when he was attacked during fights outside Willard Strait Hall following a welcome back to campus event.
A friend who was also stabbed, was treated and released.
Several police agencies worked hundreds of leads according to Ithaca Police Chief John Barber.
Barber says his officers charged Nagee Green, 23, with felony murder and assault.
Green’s case will go before a Tompkins County Grand jury.
Green was arrested Monday afternoon waiting for a bus.
In a statement, the Nazaire family said they were grateful for the arrest.
