BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - A Buffalo man who terrorized a woman at gunpoint was sentenced this morning in a Buffalo courtroom.

25-year-old Michael Easely admitted to invading a home in Lackawanna two years ago and holding the woman and children who live there at gunpoint while he and another person robbed them.

Easely is a repeat violent offender and will spend 10 years in prison for the crime. His accomplice, 24-year-old Tremaine Williams, faces sentencing in August.

Prosecutors say the men stole $1,400 in cash and other items from the store.
