Lawyer: Client charged with murder of UConn player

STORRS, Conn. — A defense attorney says his client has been charged with murder in the fatal stabbing of a University of Connecticut football player.

Deron Freeman says his client, John William Lomax, of Bloomfield, was arrested and charged with the murder of 20-year-old Jasper Howard.

Police have not commented, but have scheduled an early afternoon conference to announce what they call "significant developments" in the investigation

Freeman says he's surprised his client is charged with murder. He says he was first told that Lomax would be charged only in the fight that led to Howard's Oct. 18 death, not with the stabbing itself.

Howard, a starting cornerback whose nickname was Jazz, was stabbed outside a university-sanctioned dance.
