BUFFALO, NY - A Buffalo man convicted of killing his 10-year-old stepson will spend the next 25 years to life in prison.
Ali Mohamed Mohamud was sentenced Thursday morning for beating his 10-year-old-stepson Abdifatah to death with two rolling pins earlier this year.
A jury took just a few hours to convict Mohamud last month after a short trial that saw the defense rest without calling a single witness.
Mohamud spoke at the sentencing and asked for forgiveness. "The pain and the emptiness will never go away. I ask for your forgiveness. I am truly sorry."
