BALTIMORE (AP)- Lawyers for Maryland's Morgan State University are asking a judge to dismiss a lawsuit accusing the school of negligence for ignoring escalating warning signs that one of its students was a threat to others.
A Baltimore judge is holding a hearing in the case Monday.
The student, Alexander Kinyua, ultimately attacked a visitor to the campus with a baseball bat wrapped with barbed wire. About a week later, he later told authorities he had killed a man staying with his family and ate the man's heart and parts of his brain.
Kinyua pleaded guilty but not criminally responsible for the 2012 baseball bat attack on Joshua Ceasar at a campus dorm. Ceasar sued the historically black college in February. His lawyer says he will be asking for millions of dollars.
