So begins a charging document in the case of Andrew Coffey, the 20-year-old Florida State University student who was found unresponsive during a night of partying at the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house.

Nine men in their early 20s were charged with an offense listed as "College Hazing-Cause Injury or Death."
