GENESEO (AP) - Events are scheduled at a western New York college campus to honor the two student-athletes slain last weekend by a former student.
Wednesday’s tributes at the State University of New York at Geneseo (jeh-NEH’-see-oh) include the ringing of the college’s carillon bell at 2:30 p.m. for Matthew Hutchinson, of Vancouver, British Columbia, a hockey player who wore No. 23. The bell will ring again at 3:20 p.m. for Kelsey Annese of Webster, New York, a basketball player who wore No. 32.
Police say Hutchinson and Annese were stabbed to death early Sunday morning in Annese’s off-campus apartment by 24-year-old Colin Kingston, Annese’s ex-boyfriend and a former SUNY Geneseo student. Officials say Kingston committed suicide with the same knife.
A remembrance ceremony will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the college’s Kuhl Gymnasium.
