St. Bonaventure Student Killed in Weekend Stabbing

Olean, NY – An 18-year-old Saint Bonaventure freshman is dead after a weekend party turned violent in Olean.

Police say another teen stabbed Lavelle Matthews Saturday at a party.

An 18-year-old suspect was charged with second-degree murder. Police aren't releasing his name because he's been granted youthful offender status.

Police say they have no motive at this time.

Matthews was studying pre-law at St. Bona. Students were scheduled to hold a memorial service at the University Chapel Monday afternoon.
