Prather gets life for murder of Eldred man

In Potter County court…it’s a life sentence without the possibility of parole for a Coudersport man. 20-year old Jonothan Prather was convicted of 1st degree murder last month. He was also fined $50,000. Prather admitted he lured Samual Miller of Eldred to a secluded area of Potter County…then shot him to death. Prior to sentencing, Prather told the court he was sorry and accepted responsibility for his action. There are two co-defendants in the case. 16-year old Kaylynn Benson of Coudersport has already pleaded guilty to murder and is awaiting sentencing. Meanwhile, 26-year old Avery Buckingham of Austin is scheduled for trial in May.
