TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – Prosecutors may call more than 120 people to testify in the murder trial of Cody Cousins.

Cousins, 24, is being held without bond in the fatal shooting of another Purdue student on campus last month. Prosecutors filed discovery papers in the case, listing 126 potential witnesses, including Purdue students and police.

Prosecutors also have more than 60 recorded and written statements taken after the shooting and stabbing of 21-year-old Andrew Boldt.

One of those is a video of Cousins taken the day of the shooting, Jan. 21. The filing also includes a list of potential evidence, including a .38-caliber revolver, a Gerber knife and photographs from witnesses’ cell phones.

Cousins’ jury trial is set for April 22.
