Fourth person guilty in Chicago student's slaying

A fourth person has been convicted in the beating of a Chicago teenager whose videotaped death prompted nationwide outrage.

A fourth person has been convicted in the beating of a Chicago teenager whose videotaped death prompted nationwide outrage.

After 90 minutes of deliberations Tuesday, a Cook County jury convicted 20-year-old Eugene Riley of first-degree murder in the death of Fenger High School sophomore Derrion Albert.

Afterward, Albert's grandfather, Norman Golliday, said the family believes the verdict was "just and true." He added the process has become toxic for family members because they were going through it again and again.

In a cell phone camera video, Albert is seen being punched, slammed over his head with large boards, kicked and finally stomped on his head.

Riley was the fourth defendant convicted in Albert's murder. The last defendant in the case, Lapoleon Colbert, is scheduled for trial later this month.
