One of three Chicago teenagers accused in the beating death of a man collecting cans has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Delfino Mora, a 62-year-old father of 12, was punched by one of the teens and hit his head on the concrete as the others filmed the attack with a cellphone, police said. The teens then robbed Mora of $60, police said.

Authorities were led to the teens after a video of the attack turned up on Facebook.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Cook County Circuit Judge Joseph Claps on Thursday sentenced Anthony Malcolm to 22 years in prison for murder and an additional eight years for robbery.

Malcolm, who will turn 20 on Monday, taped the July 2012 attack on Mora. His co-defendants, Nicholas Ayala and Malik Jones, are awaiting trial.
