Cosmo DiNardo pleads guilty in Bucks County slaughters

Cosmo DiNardo pleads guilty in Bucks County slaughters

A 21-year-old man who enlisted his cousin within the savage killings of 4 males on a farm within the Philadelphia suburbs final summer time pleaded responsible Wednesday to homicide prices that can put him in jail for all times, as relations of the victims lashed out within the courtroom.

Last July, DiNardo lured the men to his family's 90-acre farm in Solebury Township under the guise of selling marijuana.

DiNardo and Kratz both tied the killings a year ago to three separate drug deals gone bad.

Kratz's attorneys, Craig Penglase and Niels Eriksen, declined to comment on their client's decision.

"Your Honor, I want the four families to know I am so sorry", he said in court, according to the DA's office.

Melissa Fratanduono, the mother of 21-year-old victim Tom Meo, cursed at DiNardo, saying it has "taken everything" for her not to kill him herself.

Kratz, on the other hand, rejected a plea deal.

Weintraub said he and the families were "disappointed" by Kratz's decision, but that he remained resolute to get justice for "our boys".

"The families came here today expecting that this would be behind them", said Tom Kline, a lawyer for Finocchiaro's family.

DiNardo pleaded guilty Wednesday and was sentenced to life in prison, which upholds a previous deal in which the district attorney agreed not to seek the death penalty in exchange for information from DiNardo. His plea gave solace to a grieving father, who turned to the stone-faced killer and told him: "Your only way out of prison is wearing a toe tag".

"That's the least we all deserve", said Mark Potash, the father of 22-year-old victim, Mark Sturgis. About a half-mile away from the farm, DiNardo led police to a second grave site where he had buried the fourth missing man, Jimi Tar Patrick, 19, of Newtown Township.

"Psychological sickness is actual, psychological sickness is gloomy, and generally it may be tragic", lawyer Fortunato Perri informed the court docket. He showed himself holding guns and would send aggressive messages to women he found attractive.

Potash called DiNardo a "perfect example of someone who started at the top and worked your way down to the gutter". In jail, you may meet savage. Potash stated. "You have lived your entire life protected".

"You suppose you are savage?" "And I promise you, it won't look like you". Three were lit on fire and placed 12-feet (3-meters) deep in an oil tank converted into a pig roaster. His lawyer said he did so to avoid the death penalty. Someday, perhaps, they'll be able to forgive him, Sharon Patrick said. He also pleaded guilty to charges of robbery, abuse of corpse, possession of an instrument of crime and possession of a weapon. "I can not come to terms with what occurred". "I can not come to terms with what occurred".

But Judge Jeffrey L. Finley told him his words sounded insincere and false.

"They have some comfort knowing Cosmo DiNardo will spend his life behind bars, but there's mixed emotion in knowing they have to deal with trial", said attorney Carin O'Donnell. Prior to the killings, DiNardo had documented mental health issues, which included an involuntary commitment and banishment from two local schools. He was given four life sentences.
