Date Set for Frat Hazing Retrial


A date is set for the FAMU fraternity hazing retrial.

The first proceeding ended in a mistrial when the jury told the judge it could not reach a verdict.

Marcus Jones, who was an aspiring fraternity member, says the five Kappa Alpha Psi brothers used canes, boxing gloves and bare fists to beat him during an initiation ceremony.

Authorities say he suffered a broken ear drum and needed surgery. This morning a new trial was set for December 11.

The defense is trying to decide if it will put the five accused frat members on the stand.
