A man accused of breaking into a north Casper home, stealing from it and setting it on fire pleaded guilty to a burglary charge Tuesday in Natrona County District Court.
A felony accessory before the fact charge against Isaiah Montiano Like, 19, was dropped as part of a plea agreement reached by prosecuting and defense attorneys.
As a condition of the plea agreement, prosecutors will ask for a maximum prison term of four to six years. Absent the agreement, Montiano Like could have faced up to 10 years in prison for the burglary charge.
Montiano Like appeared in court Tuesday wearing jail clothing. He has been held in Natrona County Detention Center in lieu of a $200,000 bond since he was arrested in June.
Law enforcement began investigating the case after determining that a home in the 300 block of North Jefferson Street was set on fire May 31.
Prosecutors claimed that security footage showed Montiano Like entering the house with a gas can and carrying various items out of the house.
A second man charged in the case, Stacy Clark, 46, remains in Natrona County Detention Center awaiting trial.
