2 More FAMU Hazing Death Defendants Arrested
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Two more defendants charged with the hazing death of a Florida A&M drum major have turned themselves in to authorities.
Twenty-one-year-old Ryan Dean and 24-year-old Jonathan Boyce turned themselves in Friday at the Leon County Jail. Both bonded out.
That leaves only one of the 11 defendants charged with felony hazing still at large. Authorities believe the woman is in Georgia, and law enforcement agents have been in contact with her family.
Eleven band members were charged with third-degree felony hazing as a result of 26-year-old Robert Champion's death. Two others face misdemeanor counts.
Champion died last November aboard a charter bus parked outside an Orlando hotel.
His death revealed a culture of hazing at the Tallahassee-based school and has jeopardized the future of its famed marching band.
