Student Charged with Murder

Following an argument near the Corner Saturday morning, 22-year-old Walter Sisk of Free Union is dead, and 21-year-old UVa student Andrew Alston is being held on charges of second degree murder. Alston, a third year, is accused of stabbing Sisk. Although the first murder in Charlottesville in 2003, Sisk, if found guilty, would be the third UVa student to have killed someone, the first being the guy who famously shot John Davis in 1940, and Jens Soering, who nearly as famously killed his girlfriend’s parents in 1985. Liesel Nowak has the story in today’s Progress.
