WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue University has announced it will provide charter bus service for students who want to attend funeral services in Wisconsin for a student fatally shot and stabbed on campus last week.

The university announced Monday it would provide bus service to West Bend, Wis., for the service of 21-year-old Andrew Boldt. Authorities say Boldt was killed Jan. 21 in Purdue’s Electrical Engineering Building on the West Lafayette campus.

An innocent plea was entered last week on behalf of 23-year-old Cody Cousins, who has been charged with murder. He has been ordered held without bond.

The buses are scheduled to leave the campus in West Lafayette about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. The visitation will be Tuesday afternoon at St. Frances Cabrini Church, followed by a funeral Mass that night at the church.
