Northern Illinois University freshman was found dead last month in Pi Kappa Alpha house

From The DeKalb Daily Chronicle: Twenty-two members of a fraternity where a 19-year-old freshman at Northern Illinois University died last month have been charged with hazing. David Bogenberger was found dead at the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house in DeKalb on the morning of Nov. 2. A toxicology report showed Bogenberger had a blood-alcohol content of 0.351 percent when he died. Five of the fraternity members face felony hazing charges, which carry a maximum penalty of three years in prison. The other 17 members face misdemeanor charges. The charges stem from an unsanctioned party that the fraternity allegedly hosted Nov. 1 for Bogenberger and 18 other pledges.
