CHICAGO – A judge has denied bail for three Chicago teenagers accused of taking part in the beating death of a disabled man and posting a video of the attack on Facebook.
During a hearing Monday, 17-year-old Nicholas Ayala and 18-year-old Anthony Malcolm were denied bail. Investigators say the two took turns recording the beating with a cellphone.
The third suspect, 16-year-old Malik Jones, was denied bail Sunday.
The three are charged with first-degree murder in last week's death of 62-year-old Delfino Mora.
Authorities allege Jones struck Mora in the face as Mora was collecting cans in an alley. Mora fell and struck his head on the concrete. The father of 12 died the next day.
Authorities say Mora didn't have full use of his right arm because of a construction accident.
