Second Suspect Charged in Grisly Slayings of 4 Pa. Men Papers reveal pot dealer's grisly confession to 4 slayings

Not far from the farm, shops line Route 202, with signs advertising fresh eggs and organic food, and a few miles away sits historic New Hope, a popular tourist spot.

Sturgis bolted - but was gunned down by DiNardo with the same Smith and Wesson 357 he used to kill Meo and Finnochiaro.

A judge entered not-guilty pleas on their behalf and they are being held without bail.

The mystery of the four men's disappearances transfixed the Philadelphia area over the past week, taking a grisly turn when human remains were discovered in a 12½-foot-deep grave on the farm.

Patrick's body was found in a six-foot grave elsewhere on the property.

DiNardo and Sean Michael Kratz, both 20, are charged with criminal homicide, conspiracy to commit homicide, robbery, abuse of a corpse and possession of a weapon. "In exchange for that confession, Mr. DiNardo was promised by the District Attorney that he will spare his life by not invoking the death penalty".

"I can't predict the future, but that is what I believe", Weintraub said.

"I mean, I know the kid", Cosmo answered. "I'd like to think that he wanted to help us get the boys home".

"He confessed to his participation or commission in the murders of four young men", Paul Lang, the lawyer, told reporters.

Dinardo and Kratz are cousins, the criminal complaint states.

The transaction was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available through this hyperlink . Envestnet Asset Management Inc.'s holdings in Target Corporation were worth $7,088,000 at the end of the most recent quarter.

The four killings took place in three separate incidents, each of which involved using marijuana to lure the men to Dinardo's property, according to a probable cause affidavit. Kratz was arrested later the same day, authorities said.

A day after a man here confessed to his role in killing four Pennsylvania men whose disappearances set off an intensive search, questions remained Friday about what unfolded in the rolling hills north of Philadelphia.

Patrick disappeared on July 5, and the rest were last seen two days later.

Kratz and DiNardo were together on July 7 when they picked up Dean Finocchiaro and brought him to the farm property to sell him a quarter pound of marijuana for $700. They walked to a remote part of the property, where DiNardo said he fatally shot Patrick with a.22-caliber rifle. There, Kratz allegedly shot him as he left a barn on the farm.

Weintraub said the investigation remains open, but he is confident police have the two suspects in custody.

DiNardo allegedly gave his cousin a.357 handgun that belonged to his mom and drove Finocchiaro back to the farm. However, Kratz told police that Dinardo was the one who shot Finocchiaro. DiNardo shot him a second time - but claimed Finnochario was already dead.

That same night, DiNardo told authorities he arranged a deal with Meo.

DiNardo told police he then ran over Meo's body with a backhoe, before he and Kratz put the bodies in the metal tank with Finocchiaro.

Dinardo allegedly poured gasoline into the tank and lit it, the complaint says.

As a law enforcement official escorted a shackled DiNardo from the courthouse on Thursday, he said, "I'm sorry". DiNardo then retrieved a backhoe, digging a six-foot-hole to bury Patrick's body, the affidavit says.
