Centereach man sentenced to 20 years in prison for beating teen to death
A Centereach man was sentenced Thursday to 20 years behind bars in the 2019 beating death of a teen.
John Mann IV admitted luring Henry Hernandez, 16, to a location known as the Sand Pit.
Authorities say that's where Mann duct taped the homeless teen and beat him to death.
Hernandez's body was found nearly a year later behind Mann's neighbor's house.
