Facebook Video Leads to First-Degree Murder Charges

CHICAGO (AP) — Authorities in Chicago say three teens charged with first-degree murder fatally beat a 62-year-old man and video of the attack was posted on Facebook.

Police say Delfino Mora was attacked in an alley on the city’s North Side early Tuesday. A passerby found him hours later and he was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston in critical condition. The Cook County medical examiner’s office says he died Wednesday afternoon from blunt head trauma.

The teens were arrested over the weekend and are slated to appear in court Monday.

Mora’s family says the father of 12 was disabled because of a workplace injury and was in the alley collecting aluminum cans to earn money for his family.
