A man charged with livestreaming the torture of a mentally ill Crystal Lake teen now faces additional battery charges in connection with an attack on a Cook County Jail inmate.
Jordan Hill, 19, was charged with battery, a misdemeanor offense, after a fight at the jail, where he and two others attacked another inmate, representatives from the Cook County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday.
The four – Hill, Tesfaye Cooper and sisters Brittany and Tanishia Covington were indicted in February on charges of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated unlawful restraint and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, as well as a pair of hate crimes.
The group is accused of torturing the teen for several hours – 30 minutes of which were streamed on Facebook Live – by slapping, cutting, beating and mocking him, prosecutors have said. During the video, the assailants cut the gagged victim’s scalp with a knife, punched him and forced him to drink from a toilet, footage showed.
