Floyd Patterson was sentenced after being convicted of aggravated assault and conspiracy to assault for the attack that occurred in January, 2015.
Robert Mohler died a few days after he was beaten by Patterson in a Laundromat.
Unlike the murders of nine black people in Charleston, South Carolina this week, Mohler's murder didn't attract national media attention, was not exploited to exacerbate racial hatred, nor did the governor hold a news conference to declare the heart and soul of Pennsylvania had been broken.
