This week, the former MIT graduate student who is currently being held on a $20 million bond after allegedly shooting and killing a Yale graduate student and leading authorities on a four-month-long chase last year is scheduled to appear in court after the case has been continued several times already.
In connection with the fatal shooting of Kevin Jiang, age 26, on February 6, 2021, in New Haven, Connecticut, Qinxuan Pan, a veteran researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who is originally from China, has been charged with murder in connection with the incident.
According to the online docket maintained by the Connecticut Judicial Branch, Pan will have a hearing on the accusation of murder on Tuesday, more than a year and a half after the savage assassination. The hearing will take place in Hartford.
After granted the defense’s several requests to postpone the case so that they might have more time to study the material, Judge Gerald Harmon is anticipated to either hold a hearing to determine whether or not probable cause existed or move forward with the matter.
