Morgan State University president addresses cannibalism case

BALTIMORE - Morgan State University's president says he wants to assure the Morgan community that safety is the university's highest priority after a student was charged in the death of a family friend.

Speaking at a university regents meeting Thursday, President David Wilson said he couldn't discuss specifics of the case of Alex Kinyua, but officials will continue to gather facts and update the community. It's the first time Wilson has addressed the matter publicly. 

Kinyua told authorities that he ate the heart and brain of a man he is charged with killing last month at his family's home. The slaying came days after Kinyua was charged in an on-campus baseball bat attack and months after his removal from the school's ROTC program for an outburst in a computer lab.
