Ohio U. Fraternity Expelled for Hazing, Death of Student

ATHENS, Ohio (24-7 News)--Ohio University is expelling a fraternity from their campus after accusations of hazing, code of conduct violations, and the death of a pledge.

School officials announced Tuesday they were expelling the Sigma Pi chapter, after the results of an investigation into complaints related to hazing and the death of Collin Wiant last November.

At the time of his death, Wiant was a pledge of the Epsilon Chapter of Sigma Pi and died at an annex of the Frat from asphyxiation due to nitrous oxide ingestion.

Results of the school's investigation showed Sigma Pi committed violations including endangerment, coerced consumption, alcohol infractions, and property damage.

Wiant was a freshman at the university from Dublin.
