A Cheektowaga man faces 25 years to life for the beating death of a 19-year-old man.

Cody Jeffords, 25, was arraigned Thursday on second degree murder charges. He is accused of beating Justin Vanderwalker to death.

Investigators say Jeffords attacked Vanderwalker on May 25 after coming home to find Vanderwalker with his girlfriend. Vanderwalker died three days later from his injuries.

Jeffords is due back in court on August 1, 2016.
