Stone Justin Foltz was 20 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Two fraternity members charged in the hazing death of a Bowling Green State University student were acquitted Friday of involuntary manslaughter and reckless homicide but convicted of several hazing-related counts.
The charges against Troy Henricksen, of Grove City, Ohio, and Jacob Krinn, of Delaware, Ohio, stemmed from the March 2021 death of Stone Foltz, 20, a sophomore also from Delaware.
Authorities have said Foltz died of alcohol poisoning after a fraternity initiation event in which he was hazed into finishing an entire bottle of alcohol. He was found unconscious by a roommate after members of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity dropped him off at his apartment.Foltz died three days after he was put on life support.
Defense attorneys had argued that Foltz was not forced or required to finish the entire bottle and made that decision on his own. Wood County prosecutors argued that a “power imbalance” was used against Foltz by the fraternity members, which caused Foltz to believe the only way he would get into the frat was to drink the whole bottle.
Henricksen was found not guilty of involuntary manslaughter, reckless homicide and tampering with evidence, while Krinn was found not guilty of two counts of involuntary manslaughter, reckless homicide and felonious assault.
Henrickson was found guilty of eight counts of hazing and seven counts of failure to comply, while Krinn was convicted of obstruction of official business, hazing and failure to comply. Krinn is scheduled to be sentenced July 8 and Henricksen on July 29, but it wasn’t clear Friday what punishment they might face.
