2005 Hit-and-Run Continues to Haunt Murray State's Lambda Chi Alpha

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Murray Fraternity

A wrongful death lawsuit against Murray State University's chapter of the fraternity Lambda Chi Alpha involving the son of a state representative may be nearing an end, a report said Saturday.

Police said Lambda Chi Alpha brother Harrison Yonts had left his frat house in November of 2005 when he struck student Nadia Shaheen with his car. Yonts, the son of North Carolina state representative Brent Yonts, has already been convicted in Shaheen's death, and will likely serve at least 17 years of a 20-year sentence in prison.

The latest lawsuit claims that Lambda Chi Alpha and its brothers lacked responsibility for giving alcohol to Yonts. Yonts admitted to being drunk the night of the accident.
