A Zanesville man is facing up to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to a robbery that happened last spring. 

24-year-old Randy Miller entered the plea in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court Monday.

According to Prosecutor Michael Haddox, in May of 2008, Miller robbed the National Road Pump and Pantry on Greenwood Avenue in Zanesville.

Haddox says DNA testing that was done on a sweatshirt found near the crime scene was what linked Miller to the robbery.

Judge Mark Fleegle ordered a pre-sentence investigation.

Miller is currently being held in the Muskingum County Jail on a $200,000 bond.

Also in court today, 48-year-old Regina Smith  of Blue Rock pleaded guilty to assault charges.

Smith was arrested in September after assaulting two Harrison Township EMT’s who responded to her home on Old River Road.

Judge Fleegle ordered a pre sentence investigation in the case.
