LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - University of Nebraska-Lincoln fraternity members accused in the alcohol death of another member have pleaded no contest to lesser offenses.

The Lincoln Journal Star (https://bit.ly/1STGQJG ) reports that 20-year-old Thomas Trueblood, 23-year Ross Reynolds and 23-year-old Cory Foland each pleaded no contest Wednesday to misdemeanor alcohol procurement charges.

Eighteen-year-old Clayton Real was found dead at the FarmHouse Fraternity house in 2014. Affidavits show he died of acute alcohol intoxication. Affidavits in the case say fraternity members threw a party the night before and provided alcohol to underage attendees, including Real.

The three men were initially charged in 2014 with felony counts of procuring alcohol for a minor resulting in death. They each face up to a year in jail. Their sentencing hearing is set for April 25.
