UPDATE: Defendant Sentenced in Slaying of RIT Professor

Rochester, NY -- The sentence is 25 years to life in prison for Natalie Johnson, one of two people convicted in the February slaying of RIT Professor Edline Chun (pictured).

Prosecutors say Johnson and accomplice Jerrell Henry entered Chun’s home on Hazelwood Terrace in Rochester and robbed her. Henry then shot Chun twice in the head, disposing of her body in a ravine in Tryon Park. Police arrested Johnson and Henry the day after the body was found.

Johnson was convicted of second-degree murder.

Henry was convicted Tuesday of first-degree murder and will be sentenced next month.
