A 21-year-old man convicted of murdering a Kenmore bar owner has been sentenced to 25 years to life.  Antonio Martin-Brown was found guilty in October in the death of 62-year-old Jim Cottone.

Cottone was found murdered in his Landers Road home Kenmore home in May of 2013.  He was the owner of Malone’s Bar and Grill on Delaware Avenue. 

It was revealed that Cottone had a secret sexual relationship with Martin-Brown, who eventually turned himself into police. 

WBFO's Chris Caya was in the courtroom Thursday morning for sentencing and will have more on the story throughout the day.
