Arrest in NJIT student death; search for 2nd suspect

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Authorities in Newark have announced an arrest and named a second suspect in the fatal shooting of a college student.

Joseph Micalizzi was shot and killed early Monday during a burglary at the fraternity house where he was a member.

The 23-year-old Freehold resident was a mechanical engineering major and had made the dean's list last fall.

Essex County officials announced murder, burglary and weapons charges against 18-year-old Nafee Cotman, of Irvington. He was in custody and police say they are still searching for 22-year-old Taquan Harris, who faces the same charges.

It wasn't immediately clear if Cotman had an attorney to comment on his behalf.

The fraternity is across the street from the Rutgers-Newark campus, near where a Rutgers student was shot and killed in a double shooting last month.
