WYOMING, Mich. — Two teens were sentenced Wednesday for the January murder of a Kelloggsville high school student.

Mitchell Savickas, 19, was sentenced to life in prison for the killing of Isaiah Blue.   He was found guilty July 14 of murder, three counts of armed robbery and other charges related to Blue's death.

Daniel Benavides, 16, was sentenced to between 20 and 40 years in prison after previously pleading guilty to second-degree murder.

Blue, 17, was shot and killed the night of Jan. 27 after he and two others exited a Rapid bus on 44th Street at Rhodes Avenue.

Police say Blue and some friends left the bus and were followed by Savickas and Benavides.

Blue was shot and killed when they tried to rob him.

"I am angry, mad, hurt and in pain to know that my son is gone forever," Claressa Seaton, Blue's mother, said in court.  "Isaiah was stolen from us after his seventeenth birthday."
