The man convicted of killing UAlbany student Richard Bailey found out how long he'll spend in prison. Devon Callicutt was sentenced Thursday in Albany County Court. Our Solomon Syed has more.

ALBANY, N.Y. -- The 20-year-old man convicted of killing UAlbany student Richard Bailey was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Devon Callicutt was found guilty last month of first-degree murder for shooting the 22-year-old in the head during a robbery attempt on South Lake Avenue in October 2008.

King Modest and Ricardo Caldwell were also arrested in the case. They pleaded guilty to first-degree attempted robbery charges and testified against Callicutt during the trial.

During Callicutt's sentencing, Bailey's father read his victim's impact statement saying, "It was like we were shot, too."
