Iron selenide, Fe1.01Se, the layered parent compound of the recently discovered superconducting arsenide family, has previously been shown to be non-magnetic and superconducting with a critical temperature of 8 K. Here we show that copper can be substituted at the iron site in Fe1.01Se up to a solubility limit of 20-30%, after which a first-order transition to the three-dimensional CuFeSe2 structure type is observed. As little as 1.5% copper is sufficient to suppress the superconductivity, and 4% drives the system through a metal-insulator transition. A local magnetic moment is introduced, which maximizes near 12% doping, where a spin-glass transition near 15 K is observed.
