Oden Gutierrez shot an 83-year old Farmington man in the back of the head in 2007 and then stole his car.
He was just 16 at the time.
A District Court judge sentenced him to life plus 19 1/2 years. That's more than 49 years in all.
Gutierrez appealed calling the sentence cruel and unusual punishment.
Justices have ordered that he be resentenced after a review of his history prior to the murder, which was not done the first time.
