A&M University student who died in a hazing incident last year have

A final judgment signed by State District Judge Bob Wortham in
Beaumont on Sept. 1 says the case has been resolved and that Donnie
and Katrina Wade should take nothing from Washington, D.C.-based
Phi Beta Sigma. Such language is often used when the parties in a

autopsy later determined that the 20-year-old student from Dallas
suffered from a series of medical conditions that were aggravated
by the exercises.
