ORLANDO, Fla. -- A judge has set an October trial date for 11 people charged with felony hazing in the death of a Florida A&M drum major.

An attorney for one of the people says the trial likely won't start until next year, though, because of the number of defendants and witnesses who need to be interviewed.

Circuit Judge Marc Lubet set the Oct. 8 date during an arraignment Thursday. Only defendant Shawn Turner was in court because he had not hired an attorney. He was appointed a public defender.

Most of the other defendants waived their appearances.

Champion died in November following what authorities have said was hazing on a bus after FAMU's football game in Orlando.
