MIAMI – The family and friends of the UConn cornerback who was stabbed to death are gathering for a viewing at a Miami mortuary.
Jasper Howard was fatally stabbed outside a dance on Connecticut's campus last Sunday. Funeral service for Howard will be held at 11 a.m. Monday at New Birth Baptist Church in Miami, his hometown. The viewing is scheduled for Sunday afternoon.
No one has been charged in Howard's death.
At Saturday's game against West Virginia, Connecticut players held hands and bowed their heads during a moment of silence in memory of Howard. Two UConn players carried Howard's helmet and No. 6 jersey from the locker room before kickoff and both West Virginia and Connecticut players wore stickers on their helmets during the game.
