A Pennsylvania prosecutor charged an additional 12 members of a Penn State University fraternity in the death of 19 year-old student Timothy Piazza on February 4th. The charges came after examining recovered surveillance-camera video of the alcohol-fueled initiation rite that turned deadly. Piazza’s death followed a drinking game at the Beta Theta Pi fraternity house. A total of 17 fraternity members are now facing various charges including involuntary manslaughter, aggravated assault, hazing and furnishing alcoholic beverages to a minor in a state that bans drinking under the age of 21.
