A 24-year-old South Side man who allegedly bragged about gunning down Chicago Police Officer Michael Bailey was indicted for his murder on Tuesday.
Antwon Carter of the 1200 block of East 69th Street was charged July 26 with first-degree murder of a police officer and attempted armed robbery in connection with the case, in which Bailey was shot and killed just steps from his front door last summer.
On July 27, Cook County Judge Israel Desierto ordered Carter held on $500,000 bond for an unrelated aggravated vehicular carjacking charge, a case in which he allegedly attacked a motorist at 75th and Cornell just a few days after Bailey was killed.
