Five former Bowling Green State University fraternity brothers convicted of hazing Stone Foltz were sentenced by Wood County Common Pleas Judge Joel Kuhlman.

Daylen Dunson, 22, of Cleveland, previously pleaded guilty to reckless homicide, tampering with evidence and obstructing justice, all third-degree felonies; and obstructing official business, eight counts of hazing and seven counts of failure to comply with underage alcohol laws, all misdemeanors.

Dunson served as president of Bowling Green’s chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha International fraternity, better known as PIKE.

Foltz, a 20-year-old sophomore from Delaware, was rushing the fraternity in early 2021. As part of the pledging process, Foltz attended a “Big Little Night” initiation event March 4, 2021, during which he drank a liter of Evan Williams Bourbon. He died several days later of fatal alcohol intoxication.
