HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Two men have pleaded guilty in a Connecticut home invasion during which two children hid and called their mother.
The Hartford Courant reports 29-year-old Clinton Mitchell entered the plea Tuesday to first-degree burglary. His co-defendant, 27-year-old Michael Walters, pleaded guilty Friday to second-degree burglary and risk of injury to a minor.
Prosecutors say the Springfield men broke into the Manchester home on Dec. 22, 2015, and thought the house was not occupied. They say an 11-year-old girl and 12-year-old boy were home.
Police said the children hid when they heard the men breaking through a door. They remained on the second floor and called their mother while the men searched the house.
Both men face seven years in prison when they’re sentenced June 14.
