A 19-year-old Buffalo man nabbed through DNA evidence in May for a Dec. 15 break-in of a Batavia home faces up to seven years in prison.

Steven McKnight entered a guilty plea in Genesee County Court today. He was already sentenced to a prison term of one-to-three years for an unrelated crime in Erie County.

McKnight will be sentenced on two charges: today's guilty plea on attempted burglary, plus an earlier plea to the same charge for a break-in December 14 in the Town of Pembroke.

All three sentences -- Erie County, Pembroke and Batavia -- will be served concurrently.
