New York man gets maximum sentence for killing girlfriend inside her college dorm room

A 22-year-old man has been sentenced to 25 years to life in prison for killing his girlfriend inside her western New York college dorm room two years ago.

Clayton Whittemore wept while being sentenced to the maximum prison term Tuesday in Rochester.

Whittemore was convicted of second-degree murder in May for fatally beating 18-year-old Alexandra Kogut inside her room at the State University of New York College at Brockport. Whittemore and Kogut were from New Hartford, near Utica.

Whittemore was enrolled at Utica College when he killed the former high school swimming star by beating her with his fists and a curling iron on Sept. 29, 2012.

Before being sentenced, the former high school hockey star apologized to Kogut's family.
