The Chenango County man convicted of killing his adopted and disabled son has been sentenced.
Monday, the judge sentenced Franklin to 21 years to life for murder in the second-degree.
Franklin's sentencing had been pushed back several times before after his counsel filed a motion asking the judge to set aside the verdict.
Sentences for the arson and tampering with evidence charges will run concurrently and are 5 to 15 years and 1 1/3 to 4 years respectively.
Franklin and his wife set their home on fire in 2017, killing their disabled and adopted son.
