BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — Two former fraternity members in Ohio have been sentenced to six weeks in jail over the hazing death of a student.

The two men were convicted of hazing-related misdemeanor counts. They had been acquitted in May of more serious charges, including involuntary manslaughter and reckless homicide- in the March 2021 death of 20-year-old Stone Foltz.

Twenty-four-year-old Troy Henricksen had been convicted of hazing and failure to comply with underage alcohol laws. He was sentenced Wednesday to 42 days in jail and 28 days of house arrest.

Twenty-one-year-old Jacob Krinn was convicted of obstruction of official business, hazing and failure to comply. He was also sentenced to 42 days in jail.

Authorities have said Foltz, a sophomore also from Delaware, Ohio, 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.
