(STMW) — A Cook County judge Thursday handed down a 30-year sentence for a teenager convicted of murder in videotaped, fatal beating of a 62-year-old Mexican native collecting soda cans in a West Rogers Park alley last year.
Disabled while working construction in the 1990s in Chicago, Delfino Mora had been picking up soda cans in the alley in the 6300 block of North Artesian Avenue to supplement his small disability payments when he was attacked by three teens playing a game called “Pick ‘em out, knock ‘em out,” prosecutors allege.
The teens were caught and charged after the video of the attack ended up on Facebook, authorities said.
Anthony Malcolm gave his “sincere apologies” to Mora’s family, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.
“I could feel your pain,” the teenager said looking at Mora’s family. “I’m truly sorry. . . . It was something I never wanted to happen.”
