Izaia Bullock, a School of Arts and Sciences junior and former athlete on the Rutgers football team, was originally arrested and charged on Tuesday for the attempted murder of an acquaintance’s family.

The former Rutgers football player charged in connection with a plot to murder has received an additional charge: one count of cyber harassment in the fourth degree, according to the Middlesex County prosecutor’s office

The Daily Targum reported earlier this week that Izaia Bullock, a School of Arts and Sciences junior, was charged in connection with a murder plot, with two counts of attempted murder in the first degree and two counts of conspiracy to commit murder in the first degree. 

The new charge was filed against Bullock during an investigation by the Rutgers University Police Department and the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, according to the office. 

He is being held at the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center, according to the office, pending a Detention Hearing scheduled for tomorrow in New Brunswick before Superior Court Judge Michael A. Toto. 

The investigation is still active and continuing, according to the office.
