(Canton) - A Canton man has been sentenced to seven years in prison after admitting his role in the January home-invasion robbery of a professional poker player.

Police in Canton said 25-year-old Christopher Lucius and another man broke into the home and stole $150,000 in casino chips and cash at gunpoint from Jerad Klick.

Lucius halted his trial Wednesday to take a plea deal. He pleaded guilty to charges including aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary and aggravated theft.

The judge also ordered Lucius to repay the $150,000 he stole.

Klick says he thinks the men followed him home from the casino in downtown Cleveland. The second robber has yet to be identified.
