PHOENIX (AP) -- Two men accused of alcohol-related violations in connection with the fatal fall of an Arizona State University student have pleaded not guilty.
 
David Siegal and Matthew Farberov appeared Wednesday in Maricopa County Superior Court in the case of Naomi McClendon.
 
The 18-year-old woman from Manhattan, Kansas, plunged 10 floors to her death March 30 from an apartment complex near ASU's campus.
 
Tempe police say McClendon initially attended an "all-you-can-drink" party thrown by ASU fraternity members and surveillance video shows her stumbling and intoxicated when she entered the residential building.
 
Siegal and Farberov, both 20, are charged with minor possession of liquor and failing to require identification.
 
Another defendant, 21-year-old Alex Kraus, faces the same charges but now lives in New Jersey. A judge reset his court appearance for Oct. 16.
