A Utica man convicted of murdering his grandmother and then setting her house on fire was sentenced on Monday in Oneida County Court.

24-year old Andre Anderson was sentenced to life without parole on two counts of first-degree murder and 25 years to life on two counts of arson.

The sentences will be served concurrently.

Police say Anderson stabbed 68-year old Freddie McKinney and set her West Street apartment on fire in January.

She died several days later.
