Bucks County District Attorney's Office in Doylestown Pa. shows Cosmo DiNardo who was arrested

Dinardo was charged with four counts each of criminal homicide, conspiracy to commit homicide, three counts of robbery and abuse of a corpse. The agreement includes not seeking the death penalty, Weintraub said.

Filing two sets of homicide charges Friday in connection to the last week's disappearances of four young men in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, police said their initial suspect has confessed to carrying out the gruesome murders with his cousin.

A criminal complaint alleges the defendants brought the victims to the farm ostensibly to buy marijuana from DiNardo. He has told investigators where the remaining bodies can be found. They're working to identify other remains found in the same grave.

The district attorney of the county of Bucks, Matthew Weintraub said Thursday that the lifeless body of Dean Finocchiaro could be identified, which was not the case for the other bodies found. As DiNardo was led away in handcuffs, he said, "I'm sorry". I have kids this age.

They also told the Associated Press a co-conspirator was involved in the deaths.

In his confession, Dinardo detailed a series of shocking killings with no clear motive.

Weintraub praised the efforts of investigators, who have worked in shifts around the clock since Sunday to locate the bodies.

Jimi Tar Patrick, 19, has been missing since last Wednesday.

DiNardo said Meo was still alive and when he ran out of ammunition, he drove the backhoe over Meo, authorities say. "Dinardo then shot and killed Patrick with a.22 caliber rifle", the affidavit states, without offering further explanation of why the deal ended with his death.

The three of them drove back to Dinardo's large property.

He referred to it as a "pig roaster", according to the complaint, which says DiNardo poured gasoline in the tank and lit it. However, Kratz told police that Dinardo was the one who shot Finocchiaro.

Kratz has apparently admitted only to witnessing most of this, saying DiNardo carried out all of the killings singlehandedly, as well as torched the bodies, crushed them with a backhoe and buried them. When Dinardo met up with him, Meo and his good friend Mark Sturgis, 22, were in Meo's Nissan Maxima, police say.

Eric Beitz, who said he had hung out with DiNardo, told that DiNardo routinely sold guns and had talked "about weird things like killing people and having people killed". Sturgis started to run anyway as DiNardo started shooting him.

Kratz told police that DiNardo "basically crushed" Meo with the backhoe.

Police say Dinardo then used the backhoe to place their bodies in the tank with Finocchiaro's.

"There was an attempt to burn the bodies, to obliterate them, but I don't believe that was successful", Weintraub said.

Patrick went missing July 5, while Finocchiaro, Meo and Sturgis all disappeared July 7. The Dinardo family owns a cement and construction company called Cosan LLC. He allegedly possessed a 20-gauge shotgun, but was not legally allowed to possess the firearm because he had a mental illness and had been involuntarily committed to a mental institution for inpatient care, according to court documents. The Bucks County District Attorney's Office had no response to the lawyer's comments on Thursday night. He was named a person of interest in the case of the missing men Tuesday but was released from custody after he posted a $1 million bail, 10 percent of which was paid in cash. His attorney said his client had pleaded guilty and was being held on a $5 million bond.

Kratz, too, has several criminal arrests.
