SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - One of two suspects apprehended in the April 2012 beating of a Syracuse man has pleaded guilty to a manslaughter charge.
The Post-Standard reports (http://bit.ly/1r4UziH) Friday that Gregory Ware is considered the least culpable of the men accused of attacking Carnell Marshall and leaving him to die in bitter cold.
The newspaper reports the 29-year-old Ware will be sentenced in November to 14 years in prison. He’s jailed without bail.
Police allege Ware, Lewis Swift and a third suspect who remains at large left Marshall in a lot behind a tire shop after beating him over three days. The newspaper says the 27-year-old was punched, kicked, bludgeoned with a board and a rock and burned with cigarettes. He died of hypothermia.
Swift is scheduled for trial in the fall.
