NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ New Haven agreed to pay $200,000 to a former Yale lecturer to help settle the lawsuit he filed against the city and the school after being named as a suspect in the 1998 killing of student.

Spokeswoman Anna Mariotti released the figure to the New Haven Register (http://bit.ly/13kLP9Z ) on Tuesday, which confirmed it with a lawyer for James Van de Velde.

Yale has declined to say how much it is paying Van de Velde, who was named as a suspect, but never charged with the slaying of student Suzanne Jovin.

Van de Velde had sued, saying the release of his name damaged his reputation, career and health. The settlement was announced on Monday.

Jovin’s slaying remains unsolved.
