The alleged suspect charged in a fight that led to a college student’s death has avoided a murder charge.

Joshua Basin, 20, was hit and killed during an alleged fight with Ryan Beauchamp, 34, on Friday, March 23 in the Bedford Avenue L train station.

According to reports, both men fell onto the tracks, but Basin was not able to escape before being struck by the train.

Beauchamp was arrested on Tuesday, March 27.

The 34-year-old faces two counts of third-degree attempted assault, harassment and disorderly conduct — all misdemeanors — but dodged a murder indictment.

The funeral for Basin was held today at St. Helen’s Church in Howard Beach.

Beauchamp is due in court on April 2.
