Murder charge in 2011 death of NY teen studentNovember 29, 2013 @ 5:02 pm
RIVERHEAD, N.Y. (AP) - A former high school classmate of a New York teenager found dead in a marsh near his Long Island home two years ago has been charged with murder.
Prosecutors arraigned 21-year-old Thomas Liming on Friday in the death of 18-year-old Kyle Underhill. Liming was held on $5 million cash bail or $15 million bond.
Prosecutors didn't reveal a motive. They said the Islip (EYE'-slihp) teen was found days after his parents reported him missing in a remote area behind an elementary school. They said he'd been beaten.
Defense attorney Joseph Corozzo told Newsday ( http://bit.ly/1jSwbIO) Liming didn't commit a crime and will be acquitted. He said there's a lot more to the story.
Liming surrendered to authorities Friday. Corozzo said in court Liming's known he was a suspect in the case.
