A 15-year-old boy has been convicted of 1st degree murder for the killing of Derrion Albert, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
A 15-year-old boy was found guilty Wednesday of first degree murder in the beating death of Fenger High School honors student Derrion Albert.
A jury found the boy guilty after deliberating for less than an hour. After the verdict was read, the boy fell back in his chair, which slammed against a wall. A family member shouted, “Oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord.’’
Earlier, prosecutors told jurors that a cell-phone video of the beating doesn’t lie. The video, which sent shockwaves around the world, was shown in court Tuesday and shows the accused teen as an “instigator” who punched Albert in the Sept. 24, 2009, melee in the 300 block of West 111th St., prosecutors said.
