2 charged in death of Wis. college student


MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) -- Two hockey players from the University of Wisconsin-Stout are now charged in the death of a fellow student.

Twenty-three-year-old Jared Britton of Regina, Saskatechewan, and 21-year-old Jed McGlasson of Kenai, Alaska, were charged Monday.

The Leader-Telegram reports both are charged with being party to felony murder and battery. Dunn County District Attorney James Peterson says felony murder is similar to manslaughter.

The two are accused in the death of 21-year-old UW-Stout student Bradley Simon. According to the complant, Simon rode away on a bicycle after an altercation at a Menomonie bar on Sept. 18. He struck his head on a concrete wall after being knocked from his bike and died five days later.

Britton was a member of the UW-Stout hockey team while McGlasson was a recruit. Both men posted bail.
