SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A Syracuse man is headed to prison for killing another man during a robbery.

Shakeith Stackhouse was sentenced Friday to 25 years to life behind bars.

Prosecutors say Stackhouse and three other men robbed 65-year-old Marvin Bryant on East Beard Avenue back in 2013.

Stackhouse stabbed Bryant in the back after the men stole his wallet. Bryant later died from his injuries.

Prosecutors say they were contacted by a number of people to express what a big loss Bryant's death was to the community.

"What they all said was Marvin Bryant really did have a generous spirit. He was a good man. He was a person who was known in the neighborhood to just help anyone anytime he could. He was really sort of a grandfather to everyone in his neighborhood," said Onondaga County Chief Assistant District Attorney Matthew Doran.

One of the other men involved in the case, Jahmeer Stackhouse, was sentenced to 18 years in prison in April.
