OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - A fraternity at the University of
Mississippi has been suspended for a year following a hazing party
on Nov. 13.
The action was taken Friday against the Kappa Alpha order by the
university's judicial council.
An investigation by the university resulted in accusations that
fraternity members hazed pledges and violated the school's alcohol
policy. Oxford police had responded to a noise complaint and
reported seeing pledges tied and blindfolded.
The suspension lasts through the fall semester of 2009.
