BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) -- 20-year-old Damario Cordelius was sentenced Tuesday for killing 23-year-old Javon Jackson just hours after his graduation from the University at Buffalo last spring.

Cordelius was sentenced to 25 years in jail for the crime, which police say was solved with the help of surveillance cameras located near the Main Street crime scene.

The victim's family was at the sentencing today, and had some harsh words for the accused.

A second suspect was also charged and received a lesser sentence for weapons possession.
