Murder charges have been dropped for one of the teens charged in the beating death of Derrion Albert. Prosecutors have not indicated why they dropped the charges against Eugene Bailey, 17, the teen previously alleged to have delivered the "knockout punch" that killed Albert. Charges are still in place for three other teens alleged to have played a role in Albert's death during a brawl near Fenger High School: Silvonus Shannon, 19, Eugene Riley, 18, and Eric Carson, 16.
