BROCKPORT, N.Y. – Sunday marks one year since the death of a New Hartford teen who was murdered in her dorm room at the College at Brockport.
Alexandra Kogut, 18, was found dead in her dorm in the early hours of September 29th of last year. The freshman communication major was beaten to death.
Prosecutors say her boyfriend, Clayton Whittemore, also from New Hartford, was at the college visiting her the night before. Whittemore was arrested at a Thruway rest stop in DeWitt only a few hours after Kogut's body was found. He's being charged with murder. His trial is expected to begin November 4th.
