BELLEFONTE, Pa. - The Centre County district attorney has announced new charges in the hazing death of a Penn State fraternity pledge.
The DA held a press conference Monday afternoon to announce the results of an investigation into security camera footage from the frat house where 19-year-old Timothy Piazza was fatally injured in February.
District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller said investigators recovered video from the now-closed Beta Theta Pi fraternity that someone tried to delete.
She said the frat's extensive video security system captured many of the events that happened that day, but that much of it was deleted while police were at the frat house.
As a result of the video investigation, 12 new students are facing charges in the case, in addition to the 14 former members already facing criminal charges.
Prosecutors also said five previously-charged students are facing more charges.
The district attorney said the security video shows Piazza had 18 drinks in one hour and 22 minutes.
