ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — Two men found guilty of murder for the shooting of a 19-year-old as he waited outside a store for a new pair of sneakers have been sentenced to 130 years to life in prison
A jury last month convicted 22-year-old Kesean (KEE'-shawn) McKenzie-Smith and 21-year-old William Wilkins on charges of second-degree murder in the death of Monte Bradley. Prosecutors say the men approached Bradley at about 4 a.m. Aug. 31, 2012, as Bradley and others lined up outside a store in the Rochester suburb of Gates to buy new $220 Nike Foamposites.
The Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester reports (http://on.rocne.ws/I19giD ) that State Supreme Court Justice Francis Affronti told the pair at their sentencing Tuesday that their actions were "repulsive."
The two men claim they were not involved in the slaying.
