LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles County prosecutors have charged a University of Southern California student with murder in the stabbing death of a professor.

The district attorney’s office says 28-year-old David Jonathan Brown will be arraigned Tuesday.

The case includes a special allegation that Brown personally used a deadly weapon to kill 50-year-old Siaufung “Bosco” Tjan in the professor’s office.

If convicted, Brown could face a maximum sentence of 26 years to life in prison.

Tjan joined USC in 2001, taught in the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, and served as co-director of the Dornsife Cognitive Neuroimaging Center.
