A student at Louisiana State University has testified Phi Delta Theta brotherhood members have ordered Max Gruver's 18-year vow to chug strong alcohol before he died during an initiation ritual called & # 39; Bible study & # 39 ;.
Kwabena Kumi said on Thursday from the witness stand that Matthew Naquin, 21, was the apparent leader of the devastating event of the brotherhood in September 2017.
Kumi testified that he instructed Naquin to let Gruver chat with spirits for ten seconds. Naquin is accused of negligent murder in the death of the first-year student caused by alcohol poisoning.

Kumi said that Naquin was in charge and he was the noisiest person in the room, but he wasn't the only one who fed Gruver with alcohol.
& # 39; All the guys up there have let him drink & # 39 ;, said the witness, according to reports The lawyer.
A brother brother, Zachary Castillo, testified under an immunity award that there were a maximum of 10 bottles of 190-fat alcoholic beverage during the event.
Castillo said he might have given something to Gruver, who, according to the authorities, was later found with a blood alcohol level that was more than six times the legal limit.
Two other students also testified that Naquin, whom they said she was drunk and & # 39; irritating and harsh & # 39 ;, was targeting Gruver.
Kumi said that Naquin was reportedly tightened in Gruver after the vow was repeatedly not answered to answer questions about Phi Delta Theta, or to correctly recite the Greek alphabet.

Naquin & # 39; s former roommate, Ryan Matthew Isto, 20, from Butte, Montana, ex-LSU student Sean-Paul Gott, 21, from Lafayette and Patrick Forde, 21 were also charged with hazing.
Isto and Gott did not argue last year for a competition to deceive hazing and agreed to testify during the trial, The lawyer reported. Prosecutors have yet to decide whether to prosecute Forde.
Gruver's parents said their son would live today & # 39; if it wasn't about the hazing and actions of people who were supposed to be his brothers & # 39 ;.
Naquin is sentenced to five years in prison if he is sentenced to death in Gruver. His trial will resume on Monday.
LSU has banned Phi Delta Theta from the campus until at least 2033 due to the hazing death.
The university was involved in another hazing-related controversy early this year, when members of Delta Kappa Epsilon reportedly forced the promises to lie on glass while being kicked and peeed on with steel-nose boots.
The game would have obliged Gruver to recite facts about his brotherhood, Phi Delta Theta, and chug liquor when he gave a wrong answer. The student house is shown in 2017
