“The arrest was made in private, outside of any classroom,” Festa said.

Neither the Monroe Police Department nor the Ouachita Parish Prosecutors Office issued comments about the arrest. There are very few details about the crime too.

The supervisory criminal investigator for the U.S. Marshals Service in Austin, Hector Gomez, said that the warrants were issued on Monday and they come from a single incident.

Alexander appeared in front of a magistrate in San Antonio on Wednesday. He is being held  without bail in Bexar County on murder charges, a charge of simple arson and a charge of aggravated arson.

Alexander was living in Chaminade Hall, the residence for graduate students on the campus of St. Mary’s. He will be extradited to Louisiana, according to Festa. He status as a student is being evaluated by the university.

“Everybody here is very concerned about everybody affected by the accusation, and we’re concerned about the safety and security of the campus,” Festa said.
