Associated Press Release
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The last of the suspects to be charged with the death of a Florida A & M University drum major during a hazing ritual has a date in court.
Darryl Cearnel has an arraignment Tuesday in state court in Orlando.
Cearnel was charged with manslaughter and felony hazing last March, almost a year and a half after drum major Robert Champion died.
Most of the other dozen or so other defendants facing charges in the case were charged last year.
Prosecutors say Champion collapsed and died after walking down a gantlet of other band members who beat him with fists and instruments on a bus parked outside an Orlando hotel in November 2011.
Cearnel isn't expected be in court since he has filed a waiver to appear.
