MIAMI – A man accused of stabbing a Florida International University football player to death turned himself in to the court on Monday, according to the state attorney on the case.

State Attorney Ray Araujo said Quentin Wyche was booked, processed and released with the same bond restrictions as before.

Wyche is facing second-degree murder charges in the stabbing death of Kendall Berry. Police said Berry, who was a running back for the school's football team, was fatally stabbed with a pair of scissors outside the school gym in 2010.

Police said the incident began as an argument over a girl.

Wyche, who was briefly a teammate, was arraigned Tuesday on the same charges that were refiled. Officials said he was not there and was not required to be there.

Araujo submitted a written plea of not guilty.

The judge set a new pre-trial hearing date for Aug. 8 and set the date for the trial on Sept. 3.
