Jury finds Green guilty of assault, but deadlocked on murder, manslaughter charges

The jury in the murder trial of Nagee Green found the defendant guilty of second-degree assault Monday at Tompkins County Courthouse, but was deadlocked on murder and manslaughter charges following four days of deliberations.

Judge John C. Rowley scheduled a conference with Tompkins County District Attorney Matthew Van Houten and Green’s defense attorneys for July 21 to discuss whether to move forward with another trial. Rowley did not set a date for Green’s sentencing on the assault charge, which can carry a maximum of seven years in prison. He is held at Tompkins County Jail without bail.

Green, 23, of Freeville, was accused of fatally stabbing 19-year-old Ithaca College student Anthony Nazaire following a party on Cornell’s campus in the early hours on Sunday, Aug. 28. Green pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter and second-degree assault. Nazaire’s classmate, Rahiem Williams, suffered three stab wounds but made a full recovery.
