Man Pleads Guilty to Murder and Kidnapping Charges for a Series of Crimes

A 26-year-old Connecticut man pleaded guilty Thursday to murder and kidnapping charges in connection with a series of crimes in 2020 that led to a six-day multistate manhunt.

Peter Manfredonia admitted to shooting a former high school classmate to death, kidnapping the man’s girlfriend and stealing a car, two days after he had killed one man and wounded another with a sword.
