NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A former Wesleyan University student charged in connection with on-campus drug overdoses that sent more than a dozen people to hospitals is expected to plead guilty.

A lawyer for Zachary Kramer of Bethesda, Maryland, says he will plead guilty to a drug conspiracy charge Thursday in federal court in New Haven.

Ten Wesleyan students and another person overdosed on the synthetic party drug Molly in February and were hospitalized. Authorities say several students also overdosed on Molly in September 2014 and were hospitalized. Everyone survived.

Kramer and Eric Lonergan of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, were arrested on federal charges and expelled from Wesleyan after the overdoses. Lonergan is expected to plead guilty Nov. 23. Two other former students face state charges in connection with the overdoses.
