Seven men have been charged with hazing and supplying alcohol to an underage person in connection with the death last year of a Radford University student.
Samuel Harris Mason, 20, was found dead at a home on Fairfax Street the morning of Oct. 15.
A medical examiner found that he died of acute ethanol poisoning.
A special Radford grand jury heard testimony over three days and on Sept. 9 handed up indictments against seven members of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity at Radford, Lt. Andy Wilburn said today.
The men are: Dustin Lee Moore, Ryan N. Lawson, Chadwick N. Evancho, Christopher Michael Pizzi, William Taylor Burke, Christopher Scott Cothren and Louis Hoskins Trible.
