Have you tried turning the handle when you turn the key?

Are you sure it is functional? Some locks are just decorative.

Assuming it used to work, and there are no other ways in, door/windows, you need a locksmith.

One of two problems. Either the tail piece that attaches from the cylinder to lock broke off or its retainer came loose or broke and the cam/ tailpiece fell out, it should still be in the lock body.
If its a broken cam any lockshop should have some in stock, same goes for the retaining clip. That is if its not a cheap-o or from overseas.
