UConn murder suspect Peter Manfredonia arrested in Maryland


Peter Manfredonia, the University of Connecticut senior suspected of two murders, was captured by police in Maryland Wednesday night after five days on the lam, authorities said.

Manfredonia, 23, was picked up in Hagerstown, where authorities had previously said he was believed to be heading to in an Uber from Pennsylvania, Connecticut state police announced on Twitter.

The UConn senior had been on the run since Friday morning after allegedly murdering a 62-year-old man with a machete in Willington, Ct.

He’s also accused of killing his high school pal, 23-year-old Nicholas Eisele, who was found dead inside his Derby, Ct., home Sunday morning, police have said.

Authorities said Manfredonia, a Newtown native, was arrested without incident.

Connecticut state police said more information on Manfredonia’s capture will be provided Thursday.
