Fraternity, four humen to be sentenced in 2013 hazing demise

February 7, 2018

( CNN) A national brotherhood and four humen are expected to be sentenced Monday for charges related to the 2013 hazing death of Baruch College student and brotherhood pledge Chun “Michael” Deng. Experts say the punishment could influence other cases that involve hazing deaths.

Pi Delta Psi Inc. is guilty in November on a misdemeanour count of involuntary manslaughter, among other charges, though it was acquitted of the more serious charges of third degree slaying and voluntary manslaughter.

In May, four Pi Delta Psi members — Kenny Kwan, Raymond Lam, Charles Lai and Sheldon Wong — pleaded guilty to felony charges of voluntary manslaughter and obstructing misgiving in Deng’s death, which was the outcomes of a hazing ritual.
