Chicago Teen Gets 27 Years For Beating Man To Death After Video Of Attack Goes Viral

Nicholas Ayala, the second of three Chicago teenagers accused in the 2012 beating death of a man collecting cans, was sentenced to 27 years in prison.

Delfino Mora, a 62-year-old father of 12, was punched by one of the teens and hit his head on the concrete as the others filmed the attack with a cell phone. The teens then robbed Mora of $60.

Authorities were led to the teens after a video of the attack turned up on Facebook.

The Cook County state's attorney said 18-year-old Ayala pleaded guilty Tuesday to first-degree murder and robbery in the case.

One co-defendant was convicted of murder and robbery and was sentenced to 30 years in prison. A third co-defendant is awaiting trial.
