Rutgers Football player charged with double murder plot

A linebacker on the Rutgers University football team was accused Tuesday of involvement in a plot to murder two members of a friend’s family, authorities said.

Izaia Bullock, 22, a junior at the university from Linden, faces two counts of first-degree attempted murder and two counts of first-degree conspiracy to commit murder.

From the NJ.com:

Bullock was dismissed from Rutgers’ football team Tuesday, a source with knowledge of the matter told NJ Advance Media.

Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey and Rutgers police chief Kenneth Cop announced his arrest and the charges in a news statement Tuesday evening.

They said the charges came after determining that on Monday, “Bullock initiated a plot to murder the family members of an acquaintance.”

The targets, who are not affiliated with Rutgers, were not injured, a prosecutor’s spokeswoman said.
