Prosecutors say eight people have been indicted in the alcohol-related death of an Ohio college student found unconscious after a fraternity party.

Six of those indicted Thursday are charged with involuntary manslaughter. They range in age from 19 to 23.

Twenty-year-old Bowling Green State University sophomore Stone Foltz, of Delaware, was found by roommates and taken to a hospital in early March. He died three days later.

An investigation found that fraternity members had forced pledges to each drink an entire bottle of alcohol during an off-campus event.

The other charges against some of the eight include reckless homicide, felonious assault, hazing and violating underage alcohol laws.
