Pennsylvania court sees fraternity drinking video from night student died

The Beta Theta Pi members and the fraternity itself face the preliminary hearing that will determine if there's enough evidence to send the case to trial.

Today's preliminary hearing will determine whether the 18 brothers, as well as their fraternity, should stand trial.

The Beta Theta Pi fraternity has been permanently banned from the university following Piazza's death.

State College Detective Dave Scicchitano said evidence suggested that Piazza was entered into a drinking "gauntlet" at the Beta Theta Pi at 9:52 p.m.at the February 2 pledge party.

Investigators say a Penn State fraternity pledge's slow death at a frat party was caught on cameras. By the time help was called the next day, a police official said he had the look of a "corpse".

At about 1 a.m., fraternity brothers put a backpack full of books on Piazza, who had thrown up and was twitching, in an attempt to keep him from rolling onto his back, according to the grand jury's findings.

A judge, lawyers and the fraternity members facing charges surrounding the death of Penn State sophomore Timothy Piazza watched hours of video footage in a preliminary hearing Monday. "Thankfully the judge quickly brought them in order", Jim Piazza said after court. She also spoke about the defendants joking and laughing after the hearing.

"He looked dead", Scicchitano said of the second time Piazza was carried up from the basement.

"Of course, this comes right after all of them watching video for five hours of what real cruel and inhumane punishment was when the fraternity brothers essentially murdered our son, tortured him, held him captive and left him for dead over a 12-hour period of time", James said.

Brendan Young, 21, of Malvern, Pennsylvania: Aggravated assault, involuntary manslaughter, simple assault, reckless endangerment, evidence tampering, hazing, alcohol-related charges. Piazza died days later. "We hope to develop more information during the preliminary hearing process, and beyond, that will demonstrate that numerous charges in this case are just not applicable to the conduct".

Julian Allatt, representing Lars Kenyon, said during the hearing that for 10 minutes after police responded to the 9-1-1 call, no first-responder rendered first aid either, according to PennLive. They also slapped, hit, and doused him with water. Prosecutors edited down 12 hours of surveillance footage to three hours of video that was played in court. A Grand Jury report detailing it shows an injured Piazza trying to get up, but falling over and over again before four men are seen dragging his limp body upstairs.

His father, Jim Piazza, rocked back and forth quietly in the front row of the courtroom as he heard his final hours described. Piazza's parents, who were in attendance at the hearing, stepped out of the courtroom prior to the start of the video.
