State Police say they've charged three Onondaga County teenagers with the murder of a 46-year-old man inside home last month.
According to investigators, 16 year-old Glenwood Carr Jr. came over to his friend Mike Celi's Baldwinsville home on Superbowl Sunday and said that Anthony Miller owed his father money.
Investigators say Carr Jr. and his friends 17 year-old Mike Celi and 19 year-old Zachary Scott went to Anthony Miller's Granby trailer to steal money and marijuana. Police say that during interviews with the Baldwinsville teens, they said they were wearing ski masks, Celi had a large knife, and Scott brought a large metal pipe. During an interview, police say Mike Celi claimed that when he went into Miller's trailer a fight broke out and Celi hit miller with a hammer. Police depositions then say "Mr. Celi stated Tony ran into the knife while he had it in his hand."
In the depositions, police say Celi and Miller continued fighting and Celi told police the knife slipped out of his hand and went into Miller's chest again.
Police depositions also say Glenwood Carr Jr. and Zachary Scott admitted to police that they stole marijuana and bongs from Miller's trailer before leaving. Miller died from his wounds and was found later by friends.
All three teenagers are charged with second degree murder and first degree burglary.
Glenwood Carr Sr. is awaiting sentencing for vehicular homicide. Carr Sr. fled the scene after police say he caused a drunk driving crash in the town of Clay last summer and left his friend to die.
Troopers say Monday that the teens killed Anthony Miller during a burglary at his home in the rural Oswego County town of Granby, 25 miles northwest of Syracuse.
Police confirm Carr is the son of 43-year-old Glenwood Carr, also of Baldwinsville, who this past January pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter for a rollover crash that killed his friend in August 2013. The elder Carr, who has been arrested more than two dozen times over the past 25 years for various offenses, was accused of fleeing the scene and hiding from police for two days. He is scheduled to be sentenced later this month.
All three teens were arraigned in Granby Town Court and remanded to the Oswego County Jail. It couldn't immediately be determined if they have lawyers.
Police say their investigation is continuing. Troopers were at Celi's home Monday morning with a search warrant and were actively working at the premises.
