LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WKBW) - The teen who admitted to killing 5-year-old Isabella Tennant was sentenced in court today to 22 years to life in prison.

17-year-old John Freeman killed Tennant while she was staying with her great-grandmother in Niagara Falls in late August of last year.

Her body was found in a garbage can a few blocks away.

19-year-old Tyler Best is pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence, and is accused of helping Freeman move Tennant's body.
