ROCKVILLE, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – A judge has postponed the arraignments of six University of Connecticut students charged with alcohol-related crimes connected to the death of a student who was run over by a campus fire department vehicle.
All six students were scheduled Wednesday to make their first appearances in Rockville Superior Court, but their cases were continued to next month.
Authorities say 19-year-old sophomore Jeffny Pally, of West Hartford, fell asleep in front of a fire department garage door in October after drinking alcohol at an off-campus party. A department SUV accidentally ran over her while responding to what turned out to be a false alarm.
Police say four of the students arrested hosted the party and allowed minors to drink alcohol, while the other two bought and transported the alcohol for the party.
