New charges in hazing death
Ten former band members remain charged in the hazing death of a Florida A&M drum major after a new defendant was added by prosecutors late last month.
Jarrod Deas is now charged with manslaughter and felony hazing in the November 2011 death of Robert Champion.
He was previously charged only with misdemeanor hazing in a separate case involving another FAUM band member.
Those cases have now been consolidated.
Deas and the other nine remaining defendants in Champion's death are set to have a status hearing on their cases next week.
