A settlement is in the works in a lawsuit against the University of Kansas fraternity over a pledge's alcohol poisoning death.
Jason Wren was a 19-year-old freshman pledge who was found dead in his bed on May 8, 2009, after a night of binge drinking. An autopsy performed found the death resulted from alcohol poisoning. The parents of Jason Wren filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, and both sides have told District Judge Michael Malone they plan to submit an order outlining the settlement possibly by the weekend.
