BELLEFONTE, Pa. -- A former Penn State defensive lineman was arrested Tuesday in the killing of a student who was stabbed 93 times last spring.
LaVon Chisley, 23, of Waldorf, Md., was arrested after arriving at the Centre County courthouse for a hearing related to the murder investigation. He had been considered a "person of interest" in the case for months.
Chisley was arraigned in district court on charges of first- and third-degree murder in the death of Langston Carraway, said Patton Township Police Chief John Petrick. He was sent to jail without bail.
Chisley was booted off the Penn State football team before the 2005 season because of poor grades. After starting nine games in 2003, Chisley was mainly a reserve in 2004.
The body of Carraway, 26, a senior in labor and industrial relations, was discovered inside his State College apartment on June 5.
Chisley's attorney, Karen Muir, didn't immediately return messages left Tuesday morning.
