Man Is Charged in UConn Player Jasper Howard Murder

BREAKING NEWS-The wire services are reporting that arrest have been made in the stabbing death of UConn
football star Jasper Howard at a school sponsored dance, after a Homecoming victory.

A 21-year-old man  was charged with murder Monday,  Josh Lomax III also faces a charge of conspiracy to commit assault. Lomax was in jail, with bail set at $2 million.

Two other men had been arrested and charged related to the fight. Hakim Muhammad, 20, also of Bloomfield, was charged with conspiracy to commit assault and was being held on $750,000 bail and James Todd, 21, of Hartford, faces charges for allegedly pulling the fire alarm that sent students streaming out of a dance in the student union before the fight.

If these gentleman are proven to have committed this murder of Jasper Howard, it appears to be a conspiracy to commit murder, as well as a well-coordinated and executed crime. It had to have been a premeditated attack, and should be prosecuted as one.
