CHICAGO — A little more than a year after Chicago Police Officer Michael Bailey was shot and killed just steps from his front door, a 24-year-old man already convicted of assaulting another officer was charged with Bailey's murder Tuesday.

Antwon Carter is charged with first-degree murder of a police officer and attempted armed robbery, according to Sally Daly, a spokeswoman for the Cook County state's attorney's office.
