Murder of BK teen over iPod leads to 7-year-sentence for man

DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN - A man convicted in the death of a Brooklyn teen over an iPod was sentenced Wednesday to 7 years in prison.

A State Supreme Court judge in Brooklyn handed down the decision to 20-year-old Aaron Farrell. Farrell was found guilty earlier of attempted robbery in the fatal stabbing of 15-year-old Christopher Rose. The judge admitted there may never be a true account of the events in July 2005 and said all of the suspects may never be brought to justice. Farrell spoke at the sentencing and said he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Rose?s relatives fear Farrell will continue to cause chaos in the Brooklyn community once he is released.
