In Apex a record can be cloned as follows

customObject__c newRecord = existingRecord.clone(false,true);

newRecord .status__c = 'New'; //optionally, change any field that you want to be updated in cloned record.

insert newRecord;

For more details on the parameters of the clone method, refer the below link. http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/apexcode/Content/apex_methods_system_sobject.htm#apex_System_SObject_clone
