Prather pleads guilty to murder
A Potter County man has pleaded guilty to killing an Eldred man last year. In court, 20-year old Jonothan Prather admitted that he shot Samuel Miller of Eldred eight times. Prosecutors said the apparent motive was to silence Miller, who knew of Prathers involvement in a Port Allegany burglary. Prather admitted to the judge that the murder had been planned. Millers body was discovered near the Prouty State Park in southern Potter County. Prather will be sentenced next month. Two accomplices are awaiting their trials.
