THE BRONX - The mother of a Bronx teen who was allegedly beaten and killed in Rikers Island by a fight club run by correction officers says she was harassed in court Thursday.

Charnel Robinson and her lawyer stormed out of a courtroom at the Bronx County Hall of Justice after she says she was disrespected by remarks correction officers made in the courtroom.

The office of Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson is arguing that Christopher Robinson's refusal to join the Rikers Island fight club led to his beating death in October 2008.
