Van Patten admitted to struggling with the victim before gunfire erupted and Miller was killed. As part of his plea deal, Van Patten will testify against two other accomplices and spend 20 years in prison. State Police say the three men and Miller knew each other but haven't said what the nature of that relationship was.
