The last of four men accused of attacking and robbing an elderly Coolville woman in her home will be sentenced in early April after pleading guilty Wednesday.

Brandon Baker, 20, changed his plea in Athens County Common Pleas Court to charges of aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary.

Baker was part of a group of men who reportedly broke down the front door of 82-year-old Ota Vincent's Coolville house in January of 2012.

Sheriff Pat Kelly said the group severely beat Vincent, stabbed her in the neck and then stole several items from her home.

The other three men: Cody Stout, Colin Stout and Christopher Fleming, all previously pleaded guilty to the charges against them.

Baker's sentencing is set for April 8.
