The starter could be ceased or even the motor after sitting for so long. I would put a breaker bar on the front of the motor and try to get it to turn by hand.

Does the engine turn over freely if you remove the spark plugs ? If so I would say the Starter solenoid is bad.

Does your car have a computer module? If so, it may be a problem. If you can turn the motor by had after removing the plugs, and if you can borrow a starter to see if it is a problem, your next step is the computer module. I would bet it is the starter if I was a betting man.
