A Rochester woman, who murdered an RIT professor, was sentenced Wednesday morning.

Judge Francis Affronti sentenced Natalie Johnson to 25 years to life in prison. She was convicted of second-degree murder for the death of Edline Chun.

Police say Johnson and her boyfriend, Jerrell Henry, entered Chun's home on Hazelwood Terrace and robbed and shot her on February 3. Chun's body was found in a ravine in Tryon Park three days later.

Jerrell Henry was also convicted of Chun's death. He was found guilty Tuesday of first-degree murder.

Henry faces a maximum of life in prison without parole at his sentencing next month.
