Cosmo DiNardo Sentenced for Killing, Burying Four Pennsylvania Men

Reports: Cosmo DiNardo pleads guilty to four counts of murder, gets life in prison

DiNardo has pleaded guilty to murder charges in the gruesome killings of four young men whose bodies were found buried on a suburban Philadelphia farm.

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 confessed to the murders in interviews with police but pleaded not guilty at their December 13 arraignments.

While DiNardo has no chance of ever being paroled, Kratz woul have been eligible for parole in 59 years. "He will be punished for his cowardly behavior, which is necessary retribution for the evil which he and his accomplice, Sean Kratz, committed", attorneys Tom Kline, Robert Mongeluzzi and Carin O'Donnell said in a statement.

Sean Kratz, 21, was in court for a hearing Wednesday where he was expected to enter a plea deal, which would have given him a prison sentence up to 118 years. He also said prosecutors have Kratz's confession on video, and it could be played at trial. DiNardo, seen as the mastermind of the killings, was charged in all four.

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

Kratz, on the other hand, rejected a plea deal. The families were stunned by Kratz's decision.

Kratz's change of heart sets the stage for a trial that could pit cousin against cousin.

DiNardo rapidly confessed, and District Lawyer Matthew Weintraub stated authorities may by no means have discovered 19-year-old Jimi Taro Patrick's physique until DiNardo informed them the place it was. 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 is the least all of us deserve", Mark Potash stated.

DiNardo later led authorities to the nearby buried body of the fourth victim, Jimi Patrick, 19, of Newtown. He had a schizophrenia diagnosis and repeated contacts with police, but lawyer Fortunato Perri said mental health professionals who evaluated DiNardo after his arrest weren't sure they could present an insanity defense. 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?" "I feel just as whipsawed, probably as many of you who are watching, as many of you who have questions", said Weintraub. Three were lit on fire and placed 12-feet (3-meters) deep in an oil tank converted into a pig roaster.

At the height of the investigation that put Bucks County in the national spotlight last summer, DiNardo struck a deal with prosecutors to avoid the death penalty in exchange for his cooperation and the location of Patrick's body. He pleaded guilty to four counts of first-degree murder, along with additional counts of robbery, abuse of corpse, conspiracy, possession of instruments of crime and illegal firearms possession.

"If there is anything I could do to take it back, I would", he said. A hearing before Bucks County Judge Jeffrey Finley was delayed almost an hour Wednesday as the lawyers and District Attorney Matt Weintraub spoke to Kratz in a courthouse holding cell.
