WATERTOWN, S.D.—Three Watertown college students were sentenced this week to jail time for their connection with the death of a 19-year-old woman who died after drinking heavily at a house party last month. The Minnehaha County Medical Examiner performed an autopsy that revealed the woman's blood alcohol level .33 percent after her death. However, the examiner concluded the alcohol concentration wasn't the cause of death, but rather that she was placed face down on a bed at the party and died of "positional asphyxia due to acute ethanol intoxication."
