John William Lomax Charged With Death of Connecticut Football Player


John William Lomax has been charged with the death of University of Connecticut football player, Jasper Howard. The two were involved in a fight on the Connecticut campus on October 18th. According to The New York Times:
Lomax was also charged with conspiracy to commit assault and was being held on $2 million bail. The police announced the arrest at a news conference Tuesday afternoon. They also said that two other men had been arrested and charged related to the fight. Hakim Muhammad, 20, also of Bloomfield, was charged with conspiracy to commit assault and was being held on $750,000 bail and James Todd, 21, of Hartford, faces charges for allegedly pulling the fire alarm that sent students streaming out of a dance in the student union before the fight.

Lomax’s attorney, Deron Freeman, told The Hartford Courant earlier Tuesday that his client had been arrested in the morning after he had arrived at work. Freeman said Lomax “had nothing whatsoever to do with the stabbing” and had been trying to break up the fight.
