University Pays a $1.5M Settlement to the Family of Murdered Student

Millersville University paid a $1.5 million settlement to resolve a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of a student who was killed in her dorm room by her boyfriend eight years ago.

Karlie Hall, 18, a freshman at the university in 2015, was strangled and beaten to death in her Bard Hall dorm room by her boyfriend, Gregorio Orrostieta, who is currently serving a 20- to 40-year prison term for third-degree murder after being convicted in 2016. 

Hall’s parents, John and Jeannette Hall, filed a wrongful death suit against the university in January 2017, claiming Millersville could have prevented their daughter’s death if school officials had acted to address previous acts of violence against her by Orrostieta.
