NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - A Rutgers University student accused of plotting to kill his ex-girlfriend's parents has been arrested again and charged with trying to contact the woman.
Izaia Bullock, 22, of South River, a former university football player, was arrested Thursday and charged with contempt of court for allegedly violating an order prohibiting him from reaching out to the victim, Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey said today in a joint statement with Rutgers police Chief Kenneth Cop.
Bullock was first arrested Oct. 30, on two counts of first-degree attempted murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit the first-degree crime of murder. Two days later, on Nov. 1, Bullock was charged with one count of fourth-degree cyber harassment.
On Nov. 29, authorities gave Bullock a court order prohibiting him from having any oral, written, personal, electronic, or any form of contact or communication with the victim, Carey said.
He said that earlier this week, on Dec. 26, Bullock violated that order by contacting the victim via a group message on an online application.
Bullock currently being held at the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center.
Authorities allege Bullock planned to kill the parents of the ex-girlfriend in an effort to resume the relationship that the parents had discouraged.
Carey said police are still investigating this case and asked that anybody with information call Rutgers Police Detective Lauren Tredo at (848) 932-8025 or Detective Michael Connelly of the prosecutor’s office at (732) 745-3254.
