Lawyer: Client Charged with Murder of UConn Player

Storss, CT (AP) - A defense attorney says his client has been
charged with murder in the fatal stabbing of a University of
Connecticut football player.
Deron Freeman says his client, John William Lomax, of
Bloomfield, was arrested and charged with the murder of 20-year-old
Jasper Howard.
Police have not commented, but have scheduled an early afternoon
conference to announce what they call "significant developments"
in the investigation
Freeman says he's surprised his client is charged with murder.
He says he was first told that Lomax would be charged only in the
fight that led to Howard's Oct. 18 death, not with the stabbing
Howard, a starting cornerback whose nickname was Jazz, was
stabbed outside a university-sanctioned dance.
