SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) -- A 20-year-old California man charged in the killing of a University of Pennsylvania student is due in court.
Samuel Woodward of Newport Beach is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday in Santa Ana.
Authorities say Woodward killed 19-year-old sophomore Blaze Bernstein and buried his body in a shallow grave at a neighborhood park not far from the Bernstein family home in Lake Forest.
Authorities say he was missing for a week after leaving the house with Woodward the night of Jan. 2.
Woodward is charged with murder and an enhancement for use of a knife. He is being held without bail.
Bernstein was gay and Jewish and authorities are investigating the possibility of a hate crime. He was home in California visiting his family for winter break.
