FLATBUSH, Brooklyn (WABC) -- An arrest has been made in the fatal stabbing of a college student from Brooklyn at Cornell University.

23-year-old Nagee Green, of Freeville, was arrested on murder and assault charges of 19-year-old Anthony Nazaire of Flatbush, Brooklyn.

The Ithaca College student was stabbed and killed when a fight broke out after a Cornell University party on August 28. Witnesses said Nazaire was defending his friend.

Reginald Nazaire, Anthony's father, said his son was a "law-abiding citizen" who "loved his community and worked hard in school." He said family and friends need closure.

"What we are all hoping for is that whoever killed Anthony is brought to justice," he said.

Nazaire was majoring in Business Administration at Ithaca College, and had graduated from Brooklyn Theatre Arts High School.

Green pleaded not guilty at his arraignment and was remanded without bail.
