ORLANDO, Fla. — The last of 11 band members charged with the hazing death of a Florida A&M drum major has turned herself in to authorities.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement says 20-year-old Lasherry Codner surrendered Sunday at the Orange County jail.
Jail records showed that Codner's $15,000 bond was pending.
Eleven FAMU band members face third-degree felony hazing charges as a result of Robert Champion's death in November. Two others face misdemeanor counts.
Champion died aboard a charter bus parked outside an Orlando hotel. His death revealed a culture of hazing at the Tallahassee school and has jeopardized the future of its prestigious Marching 100 band.
A criminal investigation of the band's finances continues, as does a probe by the state university system into whether university officials ignored warnings about hazing.
