ITHACA, N.Y. — A Freeville man accused of murdering Ithaca College student Anthony Nazaire in August made an appearance at Tompkins County Court on Friday afternoon where his official bail was set.
Nagee Green, 23, is charged with second-degree murder and second-degree assault after he allegedly stabbed Nazaire to death during a street brawl at Cornell University this summer.
He was represented by attorney Joseph Joch, who said there was “a great deal of inconsistency in witness descriptions,” and that Green “deserves to be out on bail.”
Joch proposed a $25,000 cash bail to be set for Green. District Attorney Andrew Bonavia argued that the case was too high-profile for the bail to be set that low, and said there should be, “substantial bail required due to the nature of the case.”
Judge John Rowley set bail for Green at $100,000, with a $250,000 bond.
