College student wanted in 2 Connecticut slayings is captured

(AP) — Connecticut State Police say a college student wanted for two slayings in Connecticut has been captured in Maryland.

Peter Manfredonia had been the subject of a six-day search involving several police agencies and the FBI.

Connecticut State Police say the University of Connecticut senior killed a 62-year-old man and wounded another in northeastern Connecticut on Friday and killed a high school classmate in Derby on Sunday before abducting the man’s girlfriend and driving to New Jersey.

Police say Manfredonia was found in the area of a truck stop in Hagerstown, Maryland. A lawyer for the suspect’s family, Michael Dolan, said they were relieved the search had ended peacefully.
