Second Man Charged In Deaths Of Four In Pennsylvania

Lawyer Paul Lang said Thursday his client Cosmo DiNardo confessed to "the four murders" and is ready to plead guilty to four counts of first-degree murder.

All four victims are believed to be buried on a farm property in Solebury, Pa., owned by DiNardo's family.

"I feel relief. I feel so proud of my team and I feel resolved", said Weintraub during a press conference on Friday.

Weintraub would still not say what initially tipped authorities off to the DiNardo family's sprawling piece of on Lower York Road and another property owned by the family on the 2800 block of Aquetong Road, where Meo's vehicle was recovered.

Three of the slain men were buried at the farm, in Solebury, in an oil tank that had been converted into a cooker. The fourth body was found buried nearby, prosecutors said.

Afterward, Dinardo agreed to sell marijuana to Thomas Meo that same night, and he picked up Meo and his friend Mark Sturgis and drove them back to his property, the affidavit states. Patrick disappeared on July 5, and the three others went missing two days later.

However, a News18 channel said the arrests were made in connection with Amarnath Yatra terror attack case. So far, over 1.40 lakh pilgrims have reached the cave shrine located at 3,888 metres above sea-level.

Patrick and Cosmo DiNardo, whose parents own the farmland, graduated from Holy Ghost Preparatory School a year apart from each other, school spokesman Bill Doherty said. There, he shot and killed Patrick with a.22-caliber rifle.

"When they (Meo and Sturgis) turned their backs on me, I shot Tom in the back", Dinardo allegedly told detectives questioning him, according to a criminal complaint.

Cosmo DiNardo and Sean Kratz were charged Friday with the slayings of four men who were killed on a farm in Solebury Township. Kratz was charged with three counts of criminal homicide, conspiracy to commit criminal homicide, abuse of a corpse and robbery.

A person with firsthand knowledge of a man's confession to killing four missing Pennsylvania men says the man killed them separately after selling them marijuana and then burned their bodies at his family's farm.

The location was so remote, Mr. Weintraub said, that if Mr. DiNardo had not told them exactly where the body was, "I don't know if we would ever have found it".

The Bensalem Police Department had frequent dealings with Mr. DiNardo, according to the department's director, Frederick Harran, but he would not elaborate. Mr. DiNardo said he had taken a Smith & Wesson.357 Magnum handgun belonging to his mother; he said he gave it to Mr. Kratz before they drove Mr. Finocchiaro to the farm, but Mr. Kratz said that Mr. DiNardo had the gun.

DiNardo, 20, pinned one of the deaths on his cousin, who was charged Friday, although the cousin told police that DiNardo shot all four of the victims. He placed Finocchiaro's body in a metal tank, which he referred to as a "pig roaster", according to court records.

Tina Finocchiaro, the victim's aunt, wrote on Facebook on Thursday morning: "I don't have many words today I am completely crushed heartbroken and numb I lost my nephew to a crime that is unspeakable nobody should have to go through this my heart goes out to his parents and all of the other parents and I also want to thank reached out to us and prayed for for us". Sturgis then started to run, but Dinardo fired at him until he ran out of ammo, court documents say, and Sturgis fell to the ground.

Finocchiaro, 22-year-old Mark Sturgis, 21-year-old Tom Meo and 19-year-old Jimi Tar Patrick have been missing since last week. Kratz told police that DiNardo "basically crushes [Meo]" with the backhoe and then used the machine to pick up their bodies and placed them in the metal tank.

Weintraub said the two weapons used in the four homicides were also recovered.

Kratz's arrest reportedly happened in the 800 block of Magee Avenue in Philadelphia.

At this point, no one has been charged in Finocchiaro's death or the disappearance of the other men.
