A former Penn State fraternity member will stand trial after he appeared in court Wednesday. Braxton Becker is accused of deleting the video showing the hazing of fraternity pledge Timothy Piazza. Becker was the Beta Theta Pi house manager whom prosecutors said deleted security footage showing what led up to Piazza's death last year. The video was later recovered and showed the 19-year-old was given at least 18 drinks in 90 minutes before falling down the stairs and suffering a massive head injury. Wednesday's appearance marks Becker's fourth preliminary hearing on charges including tampering with evidence and obstruction of justice. Prosecutors had a computer expert testify Wednesday, and the presiding judge said the testimony clarified enough issues to send the case to trial.
