Kappa Sigma members found guilty of wrongful death

Last week, The Hurricane reported that former Kappa Sigma fraternity officers Travis Montgomery and David May were being sued for the wrongful death of pledge Chad Meredith. Meredith drowned on Nov. 5, 2001 in UM’s Lake Osceola.

A civil jury found the two fraternity brothers responsible for Meredith’s death and ordered them to pay $12.6 million to his parents.
The defendants’ attorneys said they would appeal the verdict.
