Purdue University student pleads guilty to killing West Bend native

WEST LAFAYETTE, IN (WTAQ) - A Purdue University student pleaded guilty Thursday to killing a fellow student from Wisconsin.

His lawyer said 23-year-old Cody Cousins did not seek a plea deal before he was convicted of murder. That leaves the door open to a consideration of Cousins' mental state when he stabbed and shot 21-year-old Andrew Boldt of West Bend.

It happened January 21st in an electrical engineering classroom on Purdue's main campus in West Lafayette Indiana. Boldt was serving as a teaching assistant at the time. A motive was never disclosed.

Cousins' public defender said in May he would check out the possibility of an insanity defense. A judge will decide the question of Cousins' mental state when he's sentenced on September 19th.

Both Boldt and Cousins were electrical engineering students at the time of the slaying.
