A man convicted of killing a Kent County Jail cell mate whom he suspected of stealing his snack cake will spend the next 25 to 75 years in prison.
Kent County Circuit Judge James Redford sentenced 19-year-old Benny Rochelle on Tuesday in the death of 46-year-old Jose Estrada.
Prosecutors say Rochelle dragged Estrada from the top bunk of his bed after discovering his Honey Bun snack cake was missing.
Estrada was sent crashing headfirst onto the concrete floor of their jail cell. He died two days after leaving jail in November 2006.
A jury last month convicted Rochelle of second-degree murder.
