Man convicted in 3 deaths; bodies were burned in pig roaster
DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A jury has convicted a man in the slayings of three young men whose bodies were found buried at a suburban Philadelphia farm.
Sean Kratz was convicted Friday of first-degree murder and other offenses. The jury must now decide on a sentence of death or life in prison.
The 22-year-old went to trial after rejecting an earlier plea deal. A cousin, 22-year-old Cosmo DiNardo, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison.
Bucks County prosecutors say DiNardo lured the victims to his family's Solebury farm in 2017 as part of a robbery plot.
They say Kratz shot one man in the head and served as a lookout while DiNardo killed the others.
The victims’ bodies were burned in a makeshift pig roaster and buried in a 12-foot-deep (3.5-meter) hole.
DiNardo also confessed to killing a fourth man.
