Two fraternity members charged in the hazing death of a Bowling Green State University student have been acquitted of involuntary manslaughter and reckless homicide.

Troy Henricksen, of Grove City, Ohio, and Jacob Krinn, of Delaware, Ohio, were convicted Friday of several other hazing-related counts. The charges stemmed from the March 2021 death of 20-year-old Stone Foltz. Foltz was a sophomore from Delaware, Ohio.

Authorities say Foltz died of alcohol poisoning after a Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity initiation event where he was hazed into finishing an entire bottle of alcohol. Foltz died three days after he was put on life support.
