NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - A former Rutgers University football player was indicted today on charges he plotted to kill his former girlfriend's parents and harassed the woman online.
Izaia Bullock, 22, of South River, was indicted on with two counts of first-degree attempted murder and two counts of first-degree conspiracy to commit murder, Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey announced in a statement.
In a separate indictment, Bullock was indicted for one count of fourth-degree cyber harassment, Carey said.
An investigation by the Rutgers University Police Department and the prosecutor’s office determined that on Oct. 29, 2018, Bullock initiated a plot to murder the family members of an acquaintance, Carey said.
Investigators later determined that on Oct. 25 Bullock, by means of an online capacity, harassed the acquaintance, Carey said.
Authorities allege Bullock planned to kill the parents of the ex-girlfriend in an effort to resume the relationship that the parents had discouraged.
Middlesex County Assistant Prosecutor Megan Kosovich presented the evidence to the grand jury.
Carey said the police investigation is continuing and urged anyone with information to call Detective Michael Connelly of the prosecutor’s office at (732) 745-3254.
