First court appearances were held this afternoon for a man and a teenage boy who were arrested in connection with the stabbing of  a Seattle University student early Wednesday morning.

Bail for the 23-year-old man was set at $1 million by a King County District Court judge who found cause to hold him in custody pending the filing of criminal charges.

The teen suspect, who turned 16 today, was ordered held in secure detention by a juvenile court judge.

Prosecutors said charges are expected to be filed against the two on Friday.
