New Haven to pay $200,000 in Van de Velde settlement

New Haven agreed to pay $200,000 to a former Yale lecturer to help settle the lawsuit he filed against the city and the school after being named as a suspect in the 1998 killing of a student. Spokeswoman Anna Mariotti released the figure Tuesday to the New Haven Register, which confirmed it with a lawyer for James Van de Velde. Yale has declined to say how much it is paying Van de Velde, who was named as a suspect, but never charged with the slaying of student Suzanne Jovin. Jovin’s killing remains unsolved.
