Miss. State student charged with killing fellow student

Jackson television station WLBT is

reporting on its Web site that a Mississippi State student has been

charged with capital murder in the death of another MSU student.

The station -- quoting a news release from the Oktibbeha County

Sheriff's department -- says 28-year-old Andreas Galanis of Biloxi

was found dead in his apartment Friday.

One of the victim's roommates and a MSU student, 28-year-old

Bobby Batiste of Preston, Mississippi, was charged with capital

murder.

Deputies initially responded to a missing person's call Friday.

After gaining access the Galanis' apartment, deputies noticed large

amounts of blood. The body was discovered in a vacant suite of the

apartment. Authorities say they've recovered a weapon, but will not

say what it is or how the victim died.
