    A teenager who says he was bullied before a fatal stabbing at a Bronx school has been released on bail.

    Eighteen-year-old Abel Cedeno was released Wednesday after a judge lowered his bail from $500,000 to $250,000.

    His lawyers have said Cedeno endured a long history of bullying. 

    Cedeno originally was charged with murder in the September death of 15-year-old Matthew McCree. He was indicted on a lesser charge of first-degree manslaughter.
