Frat cuts ties with chapter after student's death

STROUDSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A fraternity has revoked its affiliation with a Baruch College chapter following the death of a student during what authorities in northeastern Pennsylvania say was a fraternity ritual.

Pi Delta Psi says the chapter at the Manhattan college "violated the values and rules of our organization, including our strict no hazing policy" in what it called "unsanctioned and prohibited events."

Monroe County District Attorney David Christine says he plans criminal charges following an investigation into the Dec. 8 death of 19-year-old freshman Chun "Michael" Deng. Deng died after spending the weekend with about 30 Pi Delta Psi members at a rented house in the Poconos.

Christine alleges that Deng, one of four pledges, sustained a fatal brain injury after running a gauntlet blindfolded and with a heavy weight on his back.

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
