BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A former carnival worker has pleaded guilty to participating in a home invasion burglary that’s blamed for the death of a comic book collector.

U.S. Attorney William Hochul (HOH’-kul) says 46-year-old Albert Parsons’ plea Monday closes a case that had numerous defendants.

Authorities say the Rochester man was one of three people who burglarized the Medina home of 78-year-old Homer Marciniak, tying him up and taking his comic book collection, along with cash and coins.

Marciniak died of a heart attack a short time later.

Prosecutors say Parsons and the others were part of a shoplifting ring that stole millions of dollars from retail stores. Parsons is the last of seven defendants to be convicted in the case.

His sentencing is scheduled for April 1.
