Sentencing is scheduled for April 26th after a judge accepted a plea agreement in which a 24 year old Cedar Lake man pleaded guilty to arson and murder. Published reports say Anthony LaPorta could serve 62 years in prison for murdering a 32 year old neighbor, in July of 2012, as well as 18 years for setting the victim's house on fire, and a two-year sentence after pleading guilty to a separate incident of sexual battery of a minor, which would reportedly be served concurrently to murder and arson charges.
