Two months in jail after hazing death at Radford U.

RADFORD, Va. — A fraternity member at Radford University will spend two months in jail for his role in a hazing that led to the death of a student.

Media outlets say 21-year-old Dustin Lee Moore pleaded guilty Friday in Radford Circuit Court to hazing and buying alcohol for an underage person.

Circuit Judge Joey Showalter sentenced Moore to two years in jail, and then suspended all but two months of the term.

Moore is one of seven Tau Kappa Epsilon members charged in connection with the death of 20-year-old Samuel Harris Mason of Chesterfield County. Mason was found dead on Oct. 15, 2010, at a residence. The medical examiner’s office in Roanoke determined that Mason died from acute ethanol poisoning.

The other defendants are scheduled to appear in court this week.
