MK was apparently a top student who was expected to graduate this week.

An Egyptian medical student arrested on Friday for the murder of one of his classmates on the Caribbean island of Curacao will be transferred to a psychiatric facility this week, his lawyer said yesterday.

MK, 20, whom the Association Press reported was from Dubai, was arrested at Caribbean Medical University dorm after his classmate, KMC, was knifed to death and a teacher, FS, was left injured.

MK, who his lawyer and school officials said was from Canada rather than Dubai, was a top student expected to graduate this week.
