WORCESTER, N.Y. – Otsego County District Attorney John Muehl has confirmed that one of the teen suspects in the death of a Worcester man was the victim’s son.

Five people have been arrested and charged in the death of Kenneth Robinson, 53, who police say was shot multiple times before his house was set on fire.  

There are four Oneonta High School students charged, and Muehl is pushing to prosecute three of them as adults, including Robinson’s 15-year-old son, Dylan, as well as Anias Soto, 15, and Alexander Borgreen, 16. All three face charges of second-degree murder and first-degree burglary.

The fourth minor, 16-year-old Alexis Lottermann, will not be prosecuted as an adult on a burglary charge.

The fifth person accused in the case is 32-year-old Nicolas Meridy, is also charged with second-degree murder and first-degree burglary. He is scheduled to appear in Worcester Town Court on Thursday, Oct. 17.
