A man arrested in a deadly shooting inside a Harvard University dormitory has been taken from a Manhattan court in handcuffs to face first-degree murder charges in Massachusetts.
Jason Aquino waived extradition at his arraignment Friday in Manhattan Criminal Court. He was arrested Thursday at his Manhattan home.
His attorney didn’t immediately return a telephone call Friday.
The 23-year-old Aquino and two others are accused in the May 18 slaying of 21-year-old Justin Cosby at the university in Cambridge, Mass.
Prosecutors say the men arranged to meet Cosby to get marijuana and rob him. He was shot inside a common area of Kirkland House and died the next day.
Neither Cosby nor any of the suspects was a Harvard student.
