Two Sentenced in Christmas Day Murder

The Monroe County District Attorney's Office says Joshua Burns has been sentenced to 25-years-to-life in state prison for the murder of Jarvis Porter. Burns was found guilty in June by a Monroe County Court Jury.

Burns and co-defendant Elzie James were found guilty of bringing a shotgun to an apartment building on Genesee Street in Rochester, and using it to shoot Jarvis Porter to death inside that building. 

Elzie James was also found guilty, and was also sentenced to the same penalty -- 25-to-life.
