A Pennsylvania judge has dismissed the most serious charges filed against 11 members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity in the hazing-related death of Timothy Piazza.
Judge Allen Sinclair dismissed involuntary manslaughter charges filed against the fraternity brothers.
But he allowed new charges of "conspiracy to commit hazing" to proceed against some of the fraternity brothers.
Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro said in a statement that he was "disappointed by the decision" and is "assessing our legal options."
