A 24-year-old Charlotte native linked to a slaying in Italy is an Olivet College student who traveled there to study art with a professor and other students.
The college says Johnathan Hindenach is a junior art major who enrolled in January.
Italian authorities say Hindenach confessed to killing a man in
Florence early Thursday.
Olivet President Don Tuski says seven other students and the professor will depart Italy on Saturday.
The 16-day trip was supposed to run until May 18.
Olivet describes Hindenach as a top student who recently received an award in visual arts.
Before attending Olivet, the Charlotte man was a student at Lansing Community College and Grand Valley State University.
