Court documents say Boldt suffered both gunshot and knife wounds when he was fatally attacked around noon. Tuesday in Purdue’s Electrical Engineering Building.

Prosecutors asked that Cousins be held without bond and defence attorney Robert Gevers II didn’t contest that, so Magistrate Sean Persin ordered that Cousins remain in custody.
