BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A man accused of fatally stabbing a fellow University of Colorado student during an argument
in Boulder will face a charge of second-degree murder.
The Daily Camera reports County Judge Karolyn Moore ruled during a preliminary hearing Monday that there is probable cause for the murder charge against 22-year-old Ian Scheuermann. She denied the defense's request to reduce the charge to reckless manslaughter.
Investigators say 26-year-old Sean Hudson, of Greenfield, Indiana, was stabbed six times, including in the heart and in the neck, during an argument Dec. 12.
Scheuermann's attorney, Dan Gerash, says his client was acting in self-defense. Police say Scheuermann told them Hudson shoved him to the ground and hit him in the face.
