Indiana State places fraternity on probation after death

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) Indiana State University has placed a fraternity chapter on probation following the accidental drowning of an 18-year-old freshman during a fraternity event in Illinois.

The (Terre Haute) Tribune-Star reports (http://bit.ly/2gCsNs3 ) "conduct probation" for Sigma Chi runs through May 11, 2018 and removes the organization from good conduct standing with the university. Also, the chapter will not be allowed to have any social events until the fall 2017 term.

The Associated Press sent an email seeking comment Thursday from the fraternity chapter.

The Clark County, Illinois, sheriff's department and the school investigated the Oct. 23 death of Yiorgo Karnezis of Munster, Indiana.
