The county attorney's office says five men have been charged with two gross misdemeanor counts of furnishing alcohol to a minor. Nineteen-year-old Isaac Jon Morris, of Cokato, died of head trauma in a fall at Tamarack Hall Sept. 30. Morris was not a student. Authorities said Morris had been drinking alcohol at a large party before heading to the dorm.

Prosecutors say the men pooled funds to buy kegs of beer for the party, then sold cups to those attending.
