WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a Wichita State University student.

Isaiah Copridge also was charged Friday with aggravated robbery in the death of Rayan Ibrahim Baba, a Saudi national who was found Aug. 8 shot in a parking lot of one of the university’s dormitories. Copridge’s bond was set at $200,000 at his first appearance Friday.

Copridge and Eboni Fingal were arrested the day after Baba was shot. Fingal was charged in October with first-degree murder and aggravated robbery. Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 7.

Copridge was rearrested Thursday. His preliminary hearing is set for Dec. 17. He is being represented by a public defender. An after-hours call to the public defender’s office Friday was not answered.
