An Onondaga County teen will spend the next two decades in prison after admitting to taking part in a burglary that left a Granby man dead earlier this year.

According to Oswego County District Attorney Gregory Oakes, 19-year-old Zachary Scott of Van Buren has pleaded guilty to first degree burglary. He and two other Baldwinsville-area teens, Glenwood Carr, Jr. of Lysander and Michael Celi of Van Buren are accused of breaking into Anthony MillerĂ¢??s Granby home in February with the intent to steal from him. Police say When they discovered Miller was home, they allegedly got into a fight with him that resulted in his death.

The teens are also accused of stealing drug-related items from the home in the Indian Hills Mobile Home Park and leaving the 46-year-old Miller for dead.

Oakes says his office has agreed to a sentence of 19.5 years in state prison with five years of post-release supervision. Scott has agreed to testify against the other two defendants, Carr, Jr and Celi, if their cases go to trial.
