Homicide charges for more than two dozen people are expected following the apparent hazing death of a Baruch College student in December.

The New York Times reports that Pennsylvania police will likely charge some 30 Pi Delta Psi fraternity members involved in the death of 19-year-old Michael Deng.

Investigators say the Queens native died while taking part in a hazing ritual during a trip to the Poconos with the fraternity.

They say he was blindfolded, carrying a heavy backpack while fraternity members hit him, causing head trauma.

Police say the men waited 90 minutes before taking an unconscious freshman to the hospital.

A coroner ruled his death a homicide.

Some of the students have been suspended by Baruch and there could be more disciplinary action after the criminal investigation.

The fraternity has been disbanded.
