Suspect in Harvard Shooting Faces Judge

Published August 3, 2009

MEDFORD, Mass. (AP) — A New York City man charged in connection with a fatal shooting at a Harvard University dormitory is scheduled to face a judge in Massachusetts.

Jason Aquino is scheduled to be arraigned in Cambridge District Court on Monday on charges including murder and armed robbery.

Prosecutors say the 23-year-old Aquino was one of three men involved in the shooting of Cambridge resident Justin Cosby on May 18 in a common area of Kirkland House. Cosby died the next day.

Authorities say the three suspects intended to rob the 21-year-old Cosby of marijuana and cash. None of the four men was a Harvard student.

Aquino was arrested in New York on Thursday and waived extradition. The two other suspects, both New York men, are also in custody.
