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.

It was after Holwerda and Nolff engaged in a struggle to take McCoy down that McCoy began firing off his gun, eventually shooting both Nolff and Holwerda.

McCoy was on parole at the time of the shooting.

WILX's Josh Sidorowicz was in the courtroom today and will have more from Nolff's roommate and what's next for McCoy on News 10 at 5 and 6.
