2 men indicted in fatal shooting at New Jersey frat house

October 05, 2016 - 9:11 AM

NEWARK, N.J. - Two men charged in the fatal shooting of a New Jersey college student during a burglary at his fraternity house have been indicted on felony murder charges.

Nineteen-year-old Irvington resident Nafee Cotman and 22-year-old Newark resident Taquan Harris also face murder, robbery, burglary and weapons charges in the indictment made public Wednesday by Essex County prosecutors.

Both men remained jailed on $1 million bail each and are due to be arraigned on Oct. 17. They have previously pleaded not guilty in the slaying.

The charges against them stem from the May 2 death of New Jersey Institute of Technology student Joseph Micalizzi. The 23-year-old Freehold resident was killed at the Tau Kappa Epsilon house.
