Second Arrest to Come in the Case of UConn’s Jasper Howard


October 19, 2009

There may soon be some answers in the case of the tragic death of Jasper Howard.

According to, Hartford attorney Deron Freeman has been told that a client of his will be arrested for his role in the stabbing of the UConn cornerback early on Sunday morning. Freeman did not divulge the identity of his client but said that he was involved in a fight "with about six" Huskies football players on campus after a dance.

Freeman claims his client was not the person who stabbed Howard, but that his client was present at the time.

An arrest warrant will be issued within the next few days and others are likely to be arrested.

Freeman's client is the second person to be arrested in connection with the stabbing. On Monday, 21-year-old Johnny Hood of Hartford was arraigned on charges of interfering with an officer and breach of peace.
