New Charges In Hazing Death

Former brothers of a Penn State fraternity are facing even more charges in connection with an alleged hazing that led to the death of freshman pledge Timothy Piazza.

Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller charged 10 new defendants, reinstated charges against two people whose cases had been dropped and added counts against five who had previously been charged for actions surrounding the February 4 death of Beta Theta Pi pledge Tim Piazza.

Flanked by Piazza's parents and State College police officers, Parks Miller announced that additional video evidence had been collected in the form of surveillance footage recovered from the basement of the Beta house on the night in question.

"Brothers were coming up to him and giving him those drinks", local District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller said Monday, according to CBS.

One former frat brother, who was accused of deleting the video, was charged with tampering with evidence, obstructing administration of law and hindering apprehension. These charges include involuntary manslaughter, aggravated assault and hazing.

At 10 AM Pacific today the game will revert to 1XP , which means leveling will be much slower than it was since the game launched. As a result, the developers migrated online play to peer-to-peer (P2P) servers in an effort to provide a more stable experience.

Becker's attorney could not be reached for comment Monday. Authorities recovered video footage that had allegedly been deleted by Piazza's peers, showing he consumed 18 alcoholic drinks in one hour and 22 minutes, according to the Centre Daily Times. "However, after later examining one of the DVR surveillance boxes, State College Police uncovered evidence that the basement camera footage had actually been manually deleted just as State College Police were poised to take possession of the recording equipment".

As house manager, Becker was in charge of the house's camera system, Miller said. "Guess what guys. Now we know.It's time to man-up fellas and be accountable for your actions". A judge previously tossed their cases, but Parks Miller filed single counts of hazing, furnishing and unlawful acts against Ems and three misdemeanors against Becker for allegedly deleting the video.

The news conference is set for one o'clock this afternoon.

The affidavit was not available later Monday.

UPDATE: The university has released a statement in response to the new charges. She stated her intent to have a preliminary hearing as soon as possible, possibly combined with refiled charges against the previously charged Beta members and the fraternity.

Reports from after Piazza's death showed other instances of fraternity members attempting to cover up the situation. It means a total of 26 fraternity members are charged with various offenses stemming from Timothy's death.

As the night went on, Piazza tried over and over to stand on his own, falling each time and eventually going still. That case appears to be pending.

"In September, Judge Allen Sinclair gutted the prosecution's case, throwing out the most serious felony charges against the fraternity members and saying prosecutors had not presented enough evidence to support them".

Becker was an undergraduate majoring in material science and engineering. The video also revealed that fraternity brothers did not call for help for more than 12 hours, opting instead to slap him and pour liquid on him. That award was announced in August 2014.
