The Palm Beach Post (http://pbpo.st/1RpDM6m ) reports 22-year-old Alexander Eddie Gillis of Miami is expected in court Wednesday for a bond hearing. He is accused of killing 19-year-old Nicholas Acosta at a Boca Raton apartment that houses students from FAU, Lynn University and Palm Beach State College.
