Duke honors slain student


Duke University is honoring a murdered student by helping others get an education.

The new Abhijit Mahato memorial fellowship will honor the 29-year-old who was found dead in his apartment this past January. The fellowship will be awarded to an international engineering graduate student. Preference will be given to students from India, Mahato's native country.

The two men charged in connection with his death were also charged for the death of Chapel Hill student body president Eve Carson.
