Miss. State student charged with murder of fellow student

A Mississippi State student is in jail charged with the murder of a fellow student.

Deputies arrested 28-year-old Bobby Batiste of Preston on Friday. They went to his apartment in Starkville to follow up on a missing person's call involving one of Batiste's roommates. But once inside they found large amounts of blood, and then discovered the body of 28-year-old Andreas Galanis of Biloxi.

Authorities say they have recovered a weapon, but will not say what it is or how the victim died. So far, there's no word on a motive for the murder.
