A student at Morgan State University in Baltimore formally charged Thursday with killing a fellow student and eating some of his organs.
A judge ordered Alexander Kinyua, 21, held without bail, The Baltimore Sun reported. Investigators say Kinyua admitted killing Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, 37, and eating his heart and brains -- and led them to a trash bin where he had dumped parts of the body.
Kinyua was studying electrical engineering. Agyei-Kodie, a native of Ghana, had been a graduate student at Morgan State and was living with Kinyua and his family in Joppa, a Baltimore suburb.
Antony Kinyua, Alexander Kinyua's father, said the family last saw Agyei-Kodie when he left the house early Friday morning to go jogging. Antony Kinyua called police late Tuesday after another son, Jarrod, told him he had found a head and two hands in the laundry room.
Investigators said there were "inconsistencies" in statements from the family.
Both Alexander Kinyua and his alleged victim had troubled histories. Agyei-Kodie was expelled from Morgan State after he was convicted of sexual assault and was facing deportation to Ghana.
Alexander Kinyua was thrown out of the ROTC following a disciplinary problem this year. In May, he allegedly attacked another student with a baseball bat -- fracturing his skull and leaving him blind in one eye -- and was facing an assault charge and expulsion from the university.
