Vestal man admits to pushing grandmother down stairs, causing her death

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - The Vestal man accused of killing his grandmother in 2015 pleaded guilty to a manslaughter charge in court on Thursday.

Kenneth Weber pleaded guilty to manslaughter 1st degree for the death of his 82-year-old grandmother, Saundra Stabler.

Weber faces 25 years in prison for the charge.

In court on Thursday, Weber admitted that he pushed his grandmother down the stairs and hit her, resulting in severe injury that caused her death.

Weber was indicted by a Broome County Grand Jury in April 2015 after Stabler had been found dead.

Stabler, who had lived on Ideal Terrace, was reported missing by Vestal Police on February 5, 2015.

At that point, she hadn't been seen since January 25, 2015.

Police announced on February 7, 2015 that her body had been found.

Weber also pleaded guilty to an unrelated charge of grand larceny in court on Thursday.

The 2-4 years he faces for the grand larceny charge will be served concurrently with the time he faces for the manslaughter charge.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 28th.
