The case against a Miami University student who allegedly made a “hit list” and threatened to kill his fraternity brothers and burn down the fraternity house was continued until next month.
Cameron Wallace, a Springboro High School graduate, was charged Wednesday with aggravated menacing, a first-degree misdemeanor, after he allegedly made the threats. Accompanied by his attorney, Michael D’Amico, of Springboro, Wallace appeared for his arraignment this morning in Butler County Area I Court.
Judge Robert Lyons continued the case until June 6.
The judge told Wallace to stay away from the alleged victim and to have no contact with members of his former fraternity, Alpha Sigma Phi.
Three Alpha Sigma Phi members went to the Oxford Police Department on Saturday and told an officer that last week, when Wallace was still part of the fraternity, he had threatened to kill another member after kicking and choking him.
Wallace then allegedly sent text messages saying he had created a “hit list” of members he doesn’t like and threatened to burn the house on East Church Street.
Wallace was arrested Wednesday afternoon. D’Amico declined comment after the hearing.
