ITHACA, NY — A man accused of murdering a Brooklyn teen and assaulting a second teen in August appeared in Tompkins County Court on Monday afternoon for his arraignment.

Nagee Green, 23, is facing murder, manslaughter and assault charges after confessing to stabbing two teens, Anthony Nazaire and Rahiem Williams. Reports show that Green and Williams initially engaged in a brawl at Cornell University where Green allegedly stabbed him “repeatedly” in the back.

Documents state that Nazaire then came to Williams’ aid, and was stabbed once in the chest by Green. Reports show that Nazaire died from blood loss due to the stab wound on the left side of his chest, and Williams was hospitalized with three stab wounds to his back.

Green was indicted last week with second-degree murder, second-degree assault, and first-degree manslaughter. Court documents state that during an interview with police, Green confessed to both crimes. He was previously represented by attorney Lance Salisbury, which has since changed. Green is now represented by attorney Joseph Joch. Though Green was scheduled to be arraigned on Monday, the arraignment has now been pushed back until Dec. 9. No plea was entered on Monday.

Green is currently held at Tompkins County Jail without bail.
