A Western Michigan University basketball player has been charged with murder and armed robbery in the killing of another student last week.
Joeviair Kennedy is due to be arraigned Monday in a Kalamazoo County court for the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Jacob Jones in an off-campus apartment. Authorities claim that Kennedy killed Jones during a robbery of a phone and money while others were present.
The school has suspended Kennedy and he has already been completely wiped from the team’s website. He was in his second year with the team.
