Ole Miss fraternity suspended over hazing

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.
