A community is in mourning after losing New Hartford teen Alexandra Kogut.  The SUNY Brockport student was killed over the weekend.  Her boyfriend, 21-year old Clayton Whittemore of New Hartford, has been charged with second-degree murder.  He pleaded not guilty and is being held without bail until he returns to court Thursday. 

A Facebook page has been set up in memory of Alex.  Hundreds of people are sharing stories and condolences to the Kogut family. Everyone is being encouraged to wear purple in Alex’s honor.  A vigil in Alexandra’s honor is set for tonight at 9:30 p.m. in the school ballroom.
