STROUDSBURG (AP) – A Pennsylvania prosecutor says charges will be filed in the death of a New York City college student during a fraternity ritual.


Monroe County District Attorney David Christine says he won’t decide on which charges to file until police finish their investigation into the death of 19-year-old Chun “Michael” Deng.


Deng was a freshman at Baruch College. He died Monday, a day after friends brought him to the hospital.


Christine said Thursday that Deng was forced to run a gauntlet blindfolded and with a heavy weight on his back. The teenager suffered a fatal brain injury.


Deng was one of four pledges to the Pi Delta Psi fraternity. About 30 fraternity members spent the weekend at a rented house in the Poconos.


The college says it had no knowledge about the event.
