FARMINGTON,  Conn. (AP) _ An autopsy on the dismembered remains of an Eastern Connecticut State University student has failed to reveal how she was killed.

The state medical examiner’s office on Tuesday listed the cause of death for 20-year-old Alyssiah Wiley as “undetermined.”

Wiley’s partial remains were found on May 17 in a wooded area in Trumbull, about a mile from the Bridgeport home of her longtime boyfriend, Jermaine Richards.

State police said the remains had been cut by a human using a sharp tool.

The 30-year-old Richards has been charged with murder. He is due back in court on June 25.

Attorney John Gulas says Richards has no criminal record and will plead not guilty.

Wiley, a sophomore, was last seen alive on April 20 near campus in Willimantic.
