The Satan-worshipping teen hustler convicted of killing a popular ABC radio reporter was sentenced yesterday in Brooklyn Supreme Court to the maximum prison term of 25 years to life.

John Katehis, 18, of Queens, was found guilty of second-degree murder last month for killing George Weber, 47, of Carroll Gardens in March 2009. The two met on Craigslist, where Katehis - who had proclaimed himself an "extremist, an anarchist and a sadomasochist" on his MySpace page - was trolling for men who would pay for sex and Weber was looking for someone to "smother" him.

Weber was found bound in his apartment with more than 50 stab wounds.
