The 11th and final suspect in the hazing death of a Florida A&M University band member was arrested on Sunday, after she turned herself in.

Lasherry Codner, 20, is now in the Orange County jail, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, in a statement on Sunday. She joins 10 other people who reported to Florida jails in connection with the death of 26-year-old Robert Champion.

Champion was beaten to death on Nov. 19 in a hazing ritual after the Florida Classic football game at the Florida Citrus Bowl.

Pam Champion, Robert’s mother, told Fox Tampa Bay on Friday that “FAMU cannot go on with business as usual.”

“They need to clean house. If you don’t clean the filth out, it just stays there,” she said.

Codner faces a felony hazing charge and could spend as many as six years in prison, if convicted.

Two other band members on Friday turned themselves in on charges linked to Champion’s death.
