LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Two more young men have been given a year of probation for providing booze to an 18-year-old member of a University of Nebraska-Lincoln fraternity who authorities say died of alcohol intoxication.

Online court records say 23-year-old Vance Heyer and 20-year-old Thomas Trueblood were sentenced Monday in Lancaster County District Court. They’d pleaded no contest to misdemeanor procuring alcohol for a minor after prosecutors lowered the charge from a felony. Two others charged in the case who made the same plea deal were given similar sentences earlier Monday: Cory Foland and Ross Reynolds.

Prosecutors say the four were involved in the death of Clayton Real after an off-campus party on Sept. 4, 2014. Real was found dead the next morning in his room at the FarmHouse Fraternity house.
