Indictment Shows Green Charged With Murder, Manslaughter

Print More

Correction appended

An indictment has officially been filed against Nagee Green, after he was arrested for the murder of Ithaca College student Anthony Nazaire on Aug. 28.

Green was charged with second degree murder and first degree manslaughter in the death of Nazaire. He was also charged with second degree assault for stabbing another 19 year old male after a party in Willard Straight Hall, on Cornell’s campus.

After an investigation that lasted nearly 10 weeks, Green was taken into custody a little after 1:30 p.m. last Monday while waiting for a bus in Freeville, N.Y., where he sometimes resides.

Nazaire’s family has said that they feel Green should receive a life sentence and his sister has described Green as “an animal” that “needs to be caged up like an animal.”

“[Green] is not an innocent person,” said Kiara Nazaire after Green’s arrest. “I feel like it was something that he had in his heart to just do. He is a murderer.”

Although Green has no previous convictions, he was arrested twice — once for the possession of unlawful firearms and the other for the criminal possession of marijuana and a controlled substance, The Sun previously reported.

He is currently being held in Tompkins County Jail without bail.

A previous version of this story misidentified Kiara Nazaire’s quote, saying she made the comment after Green was tried. In fact, she spoke after he was arrested.
