Former Maine Football Player Jailed In Connection With Double Stabbing

Zedric Joseph, a former UMaine football player, is reportedly being held in a Georgia jail on warrants out for two counts of aggravated assault and one count of murder.

Joseph was taken to Richmond County Jail Wednesday morning and will stay there until West Palm Beach police pick him up. He's facing charges in connection with a double stabbing last Friday in West Palm Beach, Fla. The victims were Ricardy Chery and Vashti Laurore. Chery died from his wounds; Laurore was stabbed in the hand and treated at a hospital before being released.

Per the Bangor Daily News, Joseph was charged 15 months ago in a separate incident for domestic violence assault and threatening on the University of Maine campus.

Joseph, a running back, played his final year of football with the Black Bears this past season.

On the University of Maine's website, Joseph's hometown is listed as West Palm Beach, Fla.
