Detective: Man charged in 4 men's deaths says cousin did it


DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A detective who took a statement from one of two cousins charged in the deaths of four men on a Pennsylvania farm says the suspect told him he and his cousin went out for cheesesteaks after the killings.

Detective Martin McDonough says 20-year-old Sean Kratz said the killings were carried out by his cousin Cosmo DiNardo and he didn’t participate. The pair appeared in separate hearings Thursday in Doylestown.

McDonough testified Kratz described the killings as a “massacre” and told authorities he vomited after the first man was shot.

DiNardo admitted to killing the men on his parent’s farm in July. His lawyer says the 20-year-old confessed in exchange for prosecutors agreeing not to seek the death penalty.

Kratz is charged with killing three of the men. He was held for trial.
