COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. – Nicolas Meridy, one of four people charged in the death of a Worcester man, was sentenced to 22 years to life in prison in Otsego County Court Monday.
“I’m pleased that we were able to get a very hefty sentence without having to put the family through a trial," John Muehl, Otsego County District Attorney, said.
Three teens are also facing murder charges in the death of 53-year-old Kenneth Robinson, who was shot and killed while being robbed in his Worcester home in October of 2019. His home was then set on fire, according to police.
One of the teen suspects is Kenneth’s son, Dylan Robinson, who Muehl says shot his father.
Dylan, 15-year-old Anias Soto and 16-year-old Alexander Borgreen are all charged with second-degree murder and first-degree burglary. A fourth teen allegedly involved in the incident, 16-year-old Alexi Lottermann, is also facing a burglary charge.
Dylan, Meridy and Borgreen were also charged with arson.
It is not clear when the minors will appear in court next.
