ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) – A third person charged in the hazing death of Florida A & M University drum major Robert Champion will plead guilty.

Caleb Jackson’s attorney will enter the guilty plea to manslaughter and felony hazing Tuesday in Orange County court.

Jackson had been held in Leon County Jail on a violation of probation since his arrest.

Champion died in Orlando in November 2011 after he collapsed following what prosecutors say was a savage beating during a hazing ritual.

A dozen former Florida A&M band members have been charged with manslaughter and felony hazing.
