Bronx Teen Freed on Bail in Deadly School Stabbing

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.

The victim's mother, Louna Dennis, says she is angry about the bail and feels like the system is "failing" her.

Dennis has said her son "was no bully."
