Sanchez was taken to Erie County Medical Center where he later died from his injuries.

Holman and Ayala were charged with one count of second-degree murder. If convicted, both men face a maximum of 25 years to life behind bars. They’ve been remanded without bail.

The pair are due back in court on July 29 at 2 p.m. for a pre-trial conference.
