Probation Sentence In Fatal Fall Case

A man accused of alcohol-related violations in connection with the fatal fall of an Arizona State University student in 2014 has been sentenced.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials say Matthew Farberov was sentenced Tuesday to nine months of probation and community service for a misdemeanor count of soliciting an adult for alcohol.

The 21-year-old Farberov was among two people charged following Naomi McClendon’s death in March 2014.

Tempe police say the 18-year-old freshman plunged 10 floors to her death from an apartment complex near campus.

They say McClendon got too close to the edge, lost her balance and fell over.

Police say the woman from Manhattan, Kansas, initially attended an “all-you-can-drink” party thrown by ASU fraternity members.

Surveillance video showed her stumbling and intoxicated when she entered the residential building.
