(Reuters) - Bond was denied on Friday to the man charged with murdering a 9-year-old Chicago boy, who was shot earlier this month in an apparent case of gang-related retaliation, the Office of the State's Attorney for Cook County, Illinois said.

Corey Morgan, 27, of Lansing, Illinois, has been charged with first-degree murder for killing Tyshawn Lee, police said on Friday.
