Prosecutors Expected to Release Evidence in FAMU Case

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ Prosecutors are expected to release evidence they have against the 13 people charged in last year’s hazing death of Florida A&M drum major Robert Champion.

A state attorney’s office spokeswoman says hundreds of pages of documents and audio files will be released on Wednesday.

Champion died in November following what authorities have said was a hazing incident on a bus after FAMU’s football game in Orlando. Eleven band members have been charged with felony hazing and two are charged with misdemeanors.

Champion’s autopsy report listed his cause of death as a homicide as the result of repeated blows to his body.

FAMU’s famed Marching 100 band was suspended shortly after the incident, and officials announced it will remain sidelined at least through the 2012-2013 school year.
