Guilty plea in fatal fall that killed Manhattan woman

EMPE, Ariz. (AP) — One of the men accused of alcohol-related violations in connection with the fatal fall of an Arizona State University student has pleaded guilty.

Court documents show 20-year-old David Siegal pleaded guilty this week to one count of minor in possession of liquor with a second count dismissed.

Siegal and 20-year-old Matthew Farberovh were indicted in the case along with a third man who had charges later dropped.

Farberovh is facing charges of minor possession of liquor and failing to require identification.

Naomi McClendon plunged 10 floors to her death March 30 from an apartment complex near ASU’s campus.

Tempe police say the 18-year-old woman from Manhattan, Kansas initially attended an “all-you-can-drink” party thrown by ASU fraternity members.

Surveillance video showed her stumbling and intoxicated when she entered the residential building.
