Beta Theta Pi brothers back in court

Penn State fraternity member charged with student's death deleted video, detective says

Bream has not been charged in the case.

Muir also raised the role of Penn State assistant athletic director Tim Bream, referencing a message sent between Becker and Ed Gilmartin referencing "Tim" and implying that "Tim" advised them to get rid of social messages.

Beta Theta Pi and 18 of its members have been charged in connection with Piazza's death. He said he made multiple attempts, from over a month, to serve Bream a subpoena for the preliminary hearing.

Some face charges of involuntary manslaughter and aggravated assault, while others face less serious allegations that include evidence tampering and alcohol violations.

Owing to the large number of defendants in the case and the volume of charges against them, the preliminary hearing was spread over five days in the span of three months. District Judge Allen Sinclair ordered a contempt hearing for Tim Bream on Friday. He has not been charged in Piazza's death, but defense attorneys and Piazza's family have questioned the role he played.

Ambrose said that the accused fraternity brothers "operated under the assumption that this was condoned behavior".

Piazza, 19, a sophomore from Lebanon, NJ, fell several times during a night of drinking on February 2 that followed his participation in a pledge acceptance ceremony.

Although a contempt hearing is issued, Bream would have the right to plead the Fifth Amendment.

Scicchitano testified that Bream was a police contact during the investigation, but did not consider him head of the house.

The forum members also urged North Korea to comply with obligations stated in the United Nations Security Council resolutions. On Friday, the South's benchmark Kospi index plummeted 39.76 points, or 1.69 percent, to its lowest level since May 24.

One defense attorney suggested that Bream might have "personally approved of the gauntlet".

Witnesses told a grand jury that Bream attended a bid acceptance ceremony before any drinking began, and spent the rest of the night in his room.

"And you didn't believe him, did you?"

Penn State University, in a statement, said it could not comment on Bream, pennlive reported. "Until then, this case is not about Mr. Bream".

"Bream was in the middle of everything Bream was the one who was being paid by the fraternity to essentially be in charge of everything in that house", said Tom Kline.

Evan Kelly, representing defendant Craig Heimer, said his client expected Bream to be supervising the night's activities and had approved The Gauntlet.

Detective David Scicchitano said in Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, Pa. on Thursday that the footage was deleted two days after Piazza died, according to Penn Live.

But there was no video from the basement, where Piazza convened with others after the ceremony. He eventually died of a traumatic brain injury caused by falling down 14 steps leading to the basement and subsequent other falls through the night.
