A witness testified Wednesday Marquay McCoy tried to rob Nolff and his roommate before fatally shooting Nolff in his apartment near Cedar Village in January.

Dominique Nolff was shot and killed Jan 31. in his student apartment just off Michigan State's campus near Cedar Village.

East Lansing, Mich. (WILX) Marquay McCoy, the man suspected in the Jan. 31 shooting which killed MSU sophomore Dominique Nolff was ordered to stand trial in an East Lansing courtroom Wednesday.

McCoy is facing multiple charges including for open murder and armed robbery. Several expert witnesses and Nolff's roommate Corbin Holwerda testified Wednesday.

Holwerda offered insight into how the evening of Jan. 31 unfolded in the student apartment located just off campus on Cedar St. in East Lansing, saying McCoy attempted to rob both he and Nolff of their medical marijuana and a laptop at gunpoint.
