By Alicia Mayle,

Cody Cousins, 23, an engineering student at Purdue University, pleaded not guilty after he allegedly stabbed and shot fellow engineering student Andrew Boldt, 22, on Tuesday in a classroom in the Electric Engineering Building on campus.

The authorities found Cousins sitting outside the building with his hands behind his back. According to Reuters, bloody footprints, a handgun and its casings, along with a knife were found by Boldt’s body. Part of the attack was caught on a security video. Cousins was brought to the Tippecanoe County Jail to face murder charges on Thursday.

According to International Business Times, there is not much known about Cousins. He had a run in with police after being intoxicated, he has two addresses - one in Warsaw, Ind., and Centerville, Ohio.

Police do not have a lead on why Cousins attacked Boldt, however, they think that Cousins only targeted Boldt and no one else. Cousins will be held without bail until his trial.
