A Buffalo man now admits to beating a 67-year-old Cheektowaga man to death.

Lawrence Cassata was found dead inside his home on Walden Avenue in July of 2015. Investigators say 47-year-old Kevin Schwartz attacked Cassata while burglarizing his home.

Schwartz faces a maximum of 25 years in prison when he's sentenced in September.
