One of the two brothers arrested for the murder of 16-year-old Demarkis Robinson in 2010 will spend the next 70 years in jail.

Ricardo Jaimes was sentenced to 45 years for First Degree Murder and 25 years for Attempted Murder on November 15. Police say Robinson died after Ricardo's brother, Isaac, shot him in May 2010. Ricardo was the driver of the vehicle carrying Isaac. According to investigators, the Jaimes brothers and Robinson were in rival gangs.

Ricardo was found guilty of Robinson's death in September 2012. He will not receive any credit for early release for the First Degree Murder Sentence and must serve at least 85 percent of the Attempted Murder sentence. The two sentences will be served consecutively.

Jaimes is due back in court for post-judgment motions on December 5. The case against Isaac Jaimes is still pending.
