Brett Heffner, 28, of Corning, was sentenced this morning in Steuben County Court, to 25 years to life.  It was on March 20th, that Brett Heffner pleaded guilty to Murder in the Second Degree, for the killing of Keli Collins, in her Corning apartment, last August.  Steuben County D.A. Brooks Baker stated afterwards, that it was an emotional day in Steuben County Court.  "'All I want is my daughter back, and I cannot have that,' was what was said numerous time by the Collins family," Baker tells WVIN News.  "Keli's mother, father, sister and brother all spoke, as did her aunt, and I think for the first time in my recollection, at the end of their statements, Judge Roche said he really had no words for the defendant's conduct, and sentenced Heffner, to 25 years to life."
