The former president of the fraternity pleads guilty to the case of deadly hazing
BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) – The former president of the fraternity has pleaded guilty to the death of a student at Bowling Green State University.
22-year-old Daylen Dunson of Cleveland on Thursday pleaded guilty to several charges, including manslaughter, falsification of evidence, obstruction and eight counts of hacking. The charges are related to the death in March 2021 of 20-year-old Stone Foltz, a sophomore from Delaware, Ohio.
Authorities said Foltz died of alcohol poisoning after the fraternity was initiated when he was allegedly forced to drink a whole bottle of alcohol. A roommate found him unconscious after members of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity dropped him off at the apartment.
Foltz died three days after he was given a life support device.
By making a deal with Wood County Attorney, Dunson became the sixth person to plead guilty to the case. Each of these defendants could receive a prison term if they are convicted later this year, but prosecutors said they are likely to receive a suspended sentence.
Two people, who are due to stand trial on May 16, have not yet been identified.
