Seven men have pleaded not guilty to various charges in the fraternity hazing death of a student at Bowling Green State University.

The men were indicted last month in the March 7 death of 20-year-old Stone Foltz, of Delaware.
He was a Bowling Green State University student who authorities say was blindfolded and told to drink an excessive and ultimately fatal amount of alcohol during an off-campus hazing ritual.

Fraternity members took Foltz to his apartment afterward where a roommate later found Foltz unconscious. He died three days later.

The charges vary by student and include involuntary manslaughter, reckless homicide, felonious assault, hazing and violating state alcohol laws.
