Bond has been set at $2 million for a man accused of killing an Illinois State University student whose body was found in a burned chicken house in Newton County, Miss.

In court Friday, McLean County Assistant State's Attorney Kim Campbell said Maurice Wallace's bloody fingerprint was found in the home of Olamide Adeyooye.

She was last seen Oct. 13 in Normal, Ill., and her body was found Oct. 21. Wallace was charged with first-degree murder Thursday.

Campbell said Wallace had a phone conversation hours before Adeyooye died in which he said he felt like killing someone to get his name in the news. She wouldn't say with whom Wallace allegedly spoke.

Neither Wallace nor his attorney commented on the allegations in court Friday.
