Orlando Tercero, 22, is accused of murdering Haley Anderson, also 22, then arranging her body at an off-campus house near Binghamton University, New York, on Friday.
Anderson's body was found lying 'formally' in Tercero's bed in this off-campus house on Friday. Her worried friends traced her iPhone to the property and climbed inside a window to gain access to it. It is near Binghamton University in New York, where they all study
The girls who found Anderson said she had a handprint bruise on her arm but that there was no blood in sight. By the time she was found and police were called, Tercero was on his way back to Nicaragua
Tercero, who was also studying nursing, is said to have sent a text message to one of his sisters in Nicaragua before he fled to tell her he had done something 'bad'. It is not clear if he will be extradited
Friends said Anderson was 'bright' and loving. She was last seen on Wednesday night drinking wine and playing games with her friends
