A Baldwinsville teenager charged with second-degree murder claims the victim ran into a kitchen knife he was holding in his hand.
Anthony J. Miller, a 46-year-old Granby man, was killed on Super Bowl Sunday when four teenagers attempted to rob his mobile home.
Michael Celi, 17, of 9 McHarrie St, along with Glenwood E. Carr, 16, of 610 Lamson Road; and Zachary M. Scott, 19, of 7645 Van Buren Road are charged with burglary and murder.
According to court documents, Celi told state police in an interview Sunday that, “After the Super Bowl on Feb. 2, using their mother’s white car, Celi’s brother took him, Zach Scott and Carr to Miller’s house. When Celi and Carr entered the home, Miller attacked Carr, punching and hitting him. Celi was armed with a kitchen knife he had brought from home.
State troopers say, “Mr. Celi stated Miller ran into the knife while he had it in his hand,”
The knife penetrated Miller’s chest or stomach causing him to fall on his back. Celi told troopers that Miller pulled the knife out of him and Celi punched Miller in the face.
Carr took a glass bong from Miller’s house, Celi told troopers.
Miller was killed. He was found Feb. 3 in his mobile home by friends.
