Three teens face murder charges in the beating death of a man in Chicago after posting video of the attack on Facebook, the Chicago Tribune reports. Gang member Malik Jones, 16, allegedly handed his cell phone to friends early Tuesday before approaching 62-year-old Delfino Mora, a disabled father of 12, demanding money and punching him in the jaw. Mora had been collecting cans in an alley for extra money when he was attacked; he fell and hit his head on the ground. He was found three hours later, blood coming from his nose and vomit near his head, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. He was declared dead the next day.
Malik has been charged with murder, along with Nicholas Ayala, 17, and Anthony Malcolm, 18, who allegedly took turns filming the incident, NBC Chicago reports. He was identified after the video started being passed along: A second alleged victim of Malik's saw it and recognized the teen as his assailant; another viewer works with one of Mora's sons and got him to confirm Mora's identity. Malik has confessed to the crime. A chilling side note: This is the third time in Chicago over the past year that teens have been arrested in a videotaped attack. (Read more Delfino Mora stories.)
