20-year sentence for 17-year-old

A 17-year-old boy was sentenced to 20 years in jail on Wednesday afternoon for his part in the May 2008 murder of an Amsterdam garage owner during an argument over a car, reports the NRC.

Kenneth C and Martin M (22) stabbed the man 20 times and then tied him up. Their victim subsequently bled to death.
Because of the gruesome nature of the murder, the under-age Kenneth C was given an adult sentence.
Martin M also got 20 years in jail.
