Claude McCollum, the 27-year-old man charged with murdering a Lansing Community College professor was in court Thursday.

In a preliminary hearing, an Ingham County judge found there is enough evidence to prosecute the former LCC student.

He's charged with open murder and criminal sexual conduct in the death of Carolyn Kronenberg, a 60-year-old grandmother found dead in a classroom on the morning of January 23.

McCollum's attorney, David Merchant, said there is no physical evidence linking him to the crime scene.

"He's very concerned about what's going on, [McCollum] wants this to get going, and see what physical evidence [the prosecution] has," Merchant said. "He absolutely denies that he was involved in this crime."

If convicted, McCollum faces life in prison.
