Affidavit: Remark about woman led to UConn killing

Tuesday, November 10, 2009 - 12:27pm

An arrest warrant affidavit says the fight that led to the stabbing death of University of Connecticut football player Jasper Howard began when one of his teammates "disrespected" a woman at a school-sponsored dance.

The affidavit released Tuesday accuses a 21-year-old Bloomfield man, John Lomax, of murder in the Oct. 18 killing of Howard. The document includes an array of witness statements about the encounter.
