SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — One of two suspect apprehended in the April 2012 beating of a Syracuse man has pleaded guilty to a manslaughter charge.

The Post-Standard reports ( Friday that Gregory Ware was the least culpable of the men accused of attacking Carnell Marshall and leaving him to die in the bitter cold.

The newspaper reports the 29-year-old Ware will be sentenced in November to 14 years in prison. He's jailed without bail.

Police say Ware, Lewis Swift and a third suspect who remains at large left Marshall in a lot behind a tire shop after beating him over a three-day span.

The newspaper says the 27-year-old was punched, kicked, bludgeoned with a board and a rock and burned with cigarettes.

He died of hypothermia.

Swift is scheduled for trial in the fall.
