    SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) — A Pottawatomie County judge has rejected a request to release from a mental hospital a former East Central University student who was found insane in a classmate's killing. District Judge John Canavan Jr. on Thursday ruled that 21-year-old Jerrod Murray needs further treatment and is a continuing threat to society.
