Orlando, Florida -

A prosecutor says 13 people will be charged in the death a of Florida A&M university drum major who died after being beaten during a hazing ritual in November 2011.

The prosecutor announced the charges at a news conference Wednesday. The charges come more than five months after 26-year-old Robert Champion died aboard a chartered bus parked outside an Orlando hotel.

Detectives say Champion was hazed by band members following a performance, and witnesses told emergency dispatchers Champion was vomiting before he was found unresponsive aboard the bus.

The medical examiner's office says Champion had bruises to his chest, arms, shoulder and back. His internal bleeding caused him to go into shock, which killed him. - Sapa-AP
