ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Seventeen year-old twin brothers have been sentenced to state prison in connection with the fatal stabbing of a former classmate.

Juan Mojena (moh-HAY’-nuh) of Rochester will serve 15 years and his brother, Darvis, will serve 10 years. Both were found guilty of first-degree manslaughter in the stabbing death of Trenton Nelson last June.

A surveillance camera on a nearby store caught the attack. The two argued with Nelson, who was about to turn 16, after he got off a bus. Police said Nelson was stabbed in the torso outside a pawn shop. He was later pronounced dead at Strong Memorial Hospital.

The victim was a freshman at a Rochester public high school where he played football and basketball.
