A Louisiana jury handed down a guilty verdict Wednesday in the hazing death of a Roswell teenager.

Former LSU student Matthew Naquin was found guilty of negligent homicide in the death of Max Gruver.

Naquin, the former Phi Delta Theta, made Gruver drink 190-proof alcohol for 10 seconds straight in a fraternity hazing ritual in September 2017.

Another fraternity brother, Zachary Castillo, testified during the trial under a grant of immunity that there were up to 10 bottles of 190-proof liquor at the event they called "Bible study."

Castillo said he may have given some to Gruver, who authorities said was later found with a blood-alcohol level more than six times the legal driving limit.

Two other students also testified that Naquin targeted Gruver.

Nine other fraternity members also face charges.

Naquin could face up to five years in prison.
