(Newser) – A New York college freshman was thrilled her boyfriend was visiting last weekend—and then ominously disappointed shortly before police say she was brutally murdered by him in her dorm room. "Ahhh see you sooon !! :)" tweeted 18-year-old Alexandra Kogut to boyfriend Clayton Whittemore, reports the Utica Post-Dispatch. But soon after, she added: "Should've known."

It was the last tweet of her life. She was found shortly after by police with "extreme trauma" to her upper body from a savage beating, and Whittemore has been charged in her murder. He has reportedly admitted to police that he killed Kogut, though he has since pleaded not guilty to murder charges, reports the AP. (Read more Clayton Whittemore stories.)
