Judge Robert Neary handed down the sentences to the Trinitarios gang members separately in Bronx Criminal Court, first sending Jonaiki Martinez Estrella, 25, to prison for life without the possibility of parole for the heinous caught-on-camera June 20, 2018 machete and knife killing of 15-year-old Guzman-Feliz.

In the sentencing, the judge said the words that came to his mind throughout the hard case: senseless, savage, and cowardly. "Well, I'm here to tell you...you are not a real Dominican", the judge said.

"They abused the child - 15 years old, a kid, and innocent kid, he was no gang member, he was a good kid - and now they have to pay the outcome for what they did", Leandra Feliz said at a news conference outside the courthouse. "These criminals ripped him away from me leaving all his family and school friends".

"They killed an innocent child". "Of all these men, not a single one of them said, 'No, no, don't do it.' That night, there were two deaths, Junior and I, who was left dead inside".

"This group of evil criminals using their gang-related activities chose to go out and kill", she said. "In New York City, there has never been a case of such magnitude". As a young boy, my son dreamed of becoming a detective, so he could protect this city.Please make sure my son's dreams come true.

Juniors mom Leandra Feliz addressed the media following the sentencing and expressed her permanent grief.

Guzman-Feliz's dad, Lisandro Guzman, said the since his son's murder, he struggles "daily to find meaning in my life". I'm not going to have my son back anymore. You deserved to be punished to the fullest extent of the law. "You are and always will be a danger to society".

The sentences were handed down after the boy's mother told the judge her son's killers had taken the life of an innocent. "My hope is that another family will never have to live with the pain of losing a child, the pain that I will have to live with for the rest of my life".

Eight other defendants are scheduled to go on trial on October 22.
