TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in Florida have taken into custody another of the 13 people connected to the hazing death of a Florida A&M University student.

Bryan Jones turned himself in Wednesday night in Hillsborough County. He was released after posting a $15,000 bond.

Meanwhile, a Leon County judge refused Thursday to let another suspect, Caleb Jackson, leave jail because he's already on probation for battery. Jasmine Alexander, who said she's the mother of a 3-year-old with Jackson and engaged to him, pleaded with the judge, saying Jackson is the only source of income for their family.

Rikki Wills, another defendant arrested in Leon County, was allowed to leave jail Wednesday night after posting $15,000 bond.

Eleven defendants are being charged with hazing resulting in death, a felony. Two others face misdemeanor charges.
