Two Northern Illinois University students and another man were arrested Friday in connection with the Sept. 26 death of Oluwarotimi "Timi" Okedina. Okedina fell from an eleventh story window in Stevenson Towers, a residence hall complex at NIU. The 19-year-old was in his second year at Northern and studying geology.

The DeKalb County Coroner found that Okedina had LSD and marijuana in his system at the time of his death. Investigators determined it played a role in the fall that killed him, which was ruled accidental.

Sexual assault charges against a former NIU police officer have been dropped. Prosecutors announced yesterday they were dropping the charges against Andrew Rifkin. The announcement comes three weeks after DeKalb County Judge Robbin Stuckert said NIU police had purposefully hidden from prosecutors witness statements that could have aided Rifkin’s defense.
