MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Brandon Ajizadeh was silent as USA police detective Phil Fisher described what Ajizadeh told investigators about the murder.
Police said Ajizadeh and the victim, James Dean, and two other high school friends were in the dorm room the night before Dean was killed.
The group was using a computer when one friend discovered pictures from his Facebook page on Ajizadeh's cellphone. The man got upset an deleted Ajizadeh from his friend list.
Police said Ajizadeh confessed he was jealous of the relationship between Dean and the other man.
Early Sunday morning Ajizadeh called police saying his friend was hurt inside his room and needed help.
When police arrived, they found Dean had been stabbed 25 times.
The butcher knife used in the murder was found on the scene, but there were no fingerprints on it.
"It's not unusual for there not to be any fingerprints in a situation like that, especially when there is a tremendous amount of blood," Assistant District Attorney Jo Beth Murphree said.
Murphree said Ajizadeh told conflicting stories about what happened, but during an earlier hearing, Ajizadeh's attorney called it self defense.
"He started to approach him and have sex with him, and my client said no. And then that's what happened," defense attorney Habib Yazdi said.
The judge determined there was enough evidence to send the case to a grand jury.
The judge also kept the bond at $150,000.
