BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — The family of a University of Colorado graduate student who was stabbed to death in Boulder is raising money to pay for his funeral back home.
The Daily Camera reports (http://goo.gl/McWdgw ) relatives of 27-year-old Sean Hudson, of Greenfield, Indiana, had raised more than $17,000 online as of Monday.
Investigators say Hudson was stabbed six times during an argument off campus early Saturday morning. A fellow 22-year-old student, Ian Scheuermann, has been arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder, but prosecutors say they're considering a first-degree murder charge.
Police say Scheuermann told them he was defending himself when Hudson shoved him to the ground and hit him in the face. Scheuermann's attorneys and family didn't comment following Monday's court hearing.
Hudson earned a master's degree in psychology earlier this year and was working on a PhD.
