ORLANDO, Fla. (AP/WAOK) — The last of 11 band members facing felony charges in 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 posted $15,000 bond and would be released.

Eleven FAMU band members face third-degree felony hazing charges from Robert Champion’s death in November. Two others face misdemeanor counts.

Champion died aboard a charter bus 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.
