A Wichita man has been charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of a Wichita State University student.
Isaiah Copridge also was charged Friday with aggravated robbery in the death of Rayan Ibrahim Baba, a Saudi national who was found August 8th shot in a parking lot of one of the university’s dormitories. Copridge’s bond was set at $200,000 at his first appearance Friday.

Copridge was rearrested Thursday. His preliminary hearing is set for December 17th. He is being represented by a public defender. An after-hours call to the public defender’s office Friday was not answered.
