This still image from an Aug. 10, 2016, video provided by the Lockport Police Department shows the shoe tips of two teenagers, left and bottom edge of the frame, as they poke at embers from a fire at High Tread International, a tire recycling plant in Lockport, N.Y. What had been a summer afternoon of mischief at a vacant building ended with 14-year-old Joe Phillips dying in a blaze when one of the fires the boys set spread out of control. The surviving teen, now 14, is set to be sentenced as a juvenile Tuesday, April 25, 2017. He could get 18 months in a detention facility after pleading guilty in March to arson and burglary as part of an agreement that erased a charge of criminally negligent homicide in his friend's death.
