A Miami University student who allegedly made a “hit list” and threatened to kill his fraternity brothers and burn down the fraternity house will have his case heard by a Butler County grand jury.
Cameron Wallace, 21, a 2016 Springboro High School graduate, was scheduled to have his hearing on Thursday, but according to Butler County Area I Court records, he waived his right to a preliminary hearing on May 30.
Wallace originally was charged with aggravated menacing, a first-degree misdemeanor, but that charge was upgraded to making terroristic threat, a third-degree felony, in early May, according to court records.
He is represented by attorney Michael D’Amico of Springboro.
At his initial hearing last month, Judge Robert Lyons told Wallace to stay away from the alleged victim and to have no contact with members of his former fraternity.
Three fraternity members went to the Oxford Police Department last month and told an officer that 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.
