A Buffalo man who robbed and killed a 70-year-old man was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years in prison.

Andre Johnson, 20, was sentenced in connection to the death of Robert Bennett, Sr. Police say Bennett was found dead inside his C-Street home earlier this year. His death was later ruled a homicide and police say Johnson killed Bennett after stealing items from his home.

Johnson will have five years post release supervision.
