BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for killing his mother with a vase.

Erie County prosecutors say 42-year-old Froilan Torres of Rochester fatally bludgeoned 57-year-old Gloria Rivera while visiting her Buffalo home in October. She was rushed to the hospital with head injuries and died a short time later.

Torres pleaded guilty to manslaughter last month. He could have received up to 25 years in prison at Thursday’s sentencing.
