THE BRONX - Luis Guzman was sentenced to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to killing a 20-year-old college student over 50 cents and a cellphone.

Guzman is the first of three convicted suspects to be sentenced in the 2011 murder and robbery.

In August 2011, 20-year-old Wilmer Hernandez and his 16-year-old brother Stephen were buying snacks at a deli in Allerton when Guzman and two other men stole Stephen's cellphone. When Hernandez stepped in to defend his brother, he was shot three times in the stomach.

The two other suspects convicted, Dasheem Campbell and Hercules Griffin, still face sentencing.
