Another man was charged today in U of C grad student Amadou Cisse's murder. Benjamin Williams, 21, was charged with first-degree murder, attempted robbery, two counts of armed robbery, and aggravated discharge of a firearm for the string of robberies that preceeded Cisse's death. Williams was not accused of shooting Cisse, and he's the third person charged with crimes from that night.
Authorities previously charged Eric Walker, 16, with Cisse's killing as well as the other incidents. Demetrius Warren, 17, was charged with being involved in the other incidents but was not charged in Cisse's death.
The U of C awarded Cisse his Ph.D. a week ago.
