Cousins Charged in Murder of 4 Missing Pennsylvania Men

A Pennsylvania man confessed to authorities Thursday that he killed four young men who went missing last week, his attorney said.

Photo Cosmo DiNardo has been charged with stealing the auto of one of the four missing men.

The next day, DiNardo told investigators, he and Kratz returned to the same property, where DiNardo used the backhoe to dig a deep hole and bury the metal tank containing the three bodies.

Prosecutors indicated DiNardo had been diagnosed with schizophrenia.

In exchange for DiNardo's cooperation, Lang said, prosecutors would not seek the death penalty.

As part of his plea deal, DiNardo agreed to tell authorities where all four victims were buried. According to reports, DiNardo was involved in the sale of marijuana to the men, but that's where the troubles began.

But Patrick only had $800 on him, so DiNardo sold him a shotgun instead - then shot and killed him with a.22 caliber rifle.

The rest of the remains that have been found have yet to be identified, but according to law enforcement, DiNardo did say the bodies of all four men were in the two locations where the officials are digging.

The petition was launched by Americans United for Life - which has helped Charlie's parents with medical and legal questions. He testified on Thursday that Charlie has a 10 percent chance of improving with experimental treatment available in the U.S.

The person with firsthand knowledge of DiNardo's confession said the men were shot in the head or the back after DiNardo felt cheated or threatened during three drug transactions.

Court documents obtained by ABC News show both men also face multiple counts of conspiracy, robbery and abuse of a corpse.

DiNardo was seen exiting the Bucks County Courthouse on Thursday evening saying, "I'm sorry". DiNardo said he picked up Kratz and drove to Finocchiaro's home in Middletown, agreeing on the way there that they would rob the man. DiNardo said he handed Kratz a.357 handgun that belongs to his mother, according to the court documents.

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.

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".

It was the discovery of Meo's auto on a DiNardo family property a half-mile from the farm that led to DiNardo's re-arrest.

That same night, DiNardo told authorities he arranged a deal with Meo. He said it appeared that the suspects may have tried to burn them but were not successful. Sturgis tried to run away, but DiNardo shot him several times as he tried to escape.
