A Schizophrenic serial killer and his accomplice allegedly attempted to burn the bodies of murdered farm workers in a ‘pig roaster’.

Former student Cosmo DiNardo is one of two men to be charged in Pennsylvania over a brutal murder spree which claimed the lives of four young men.

The former student, who has a history of mental health problems, confessed to being a serial killer and it has now been revealed that he attempted to try and burn the bodies to cover his tracks.

DiNardo and his cousin Sean Kratz were charged yesterday with a series of crimes including murder and abuse of corpse.

In a press conference, District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said DiNardo confessed to putting the bodies in a metal tank converted into a cooker he called a ‘pig roaster’.

The revelation came after DiNardo was filmed shackled and wearing an orange jumpsuit, saying “I’m sorry” to waiting TV cameras as he left a courthouse on Thursday.

It was the latest shocking twist in a case which has gripped a small, rural town near Philadelphia in Pennsylvania.

It began when police confirmed they were linking the disappearances of four men within the space of few days in the same area.

Jimi Patrick, 19, was the first to vanish on July 5.

He was reported missing by worried friends the next day.

Two days later Dean Finocchiaro, 19, Mark Sturgis, 22, of Pennsburg, and Thomas Meo, 21, also disappeared.

DiNardo, who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia, was first arrested after he was caught trying to sell Meo’s car.

He was bailed by his family who own a multimillion dollar construction company and paid $10,000 in cash to get him out.

But on Wednesday, DiNardo was arrested again on charges of theft and receiving stolen property.

Meanwhile, investigators found the remains of Dean Finocchiaro on one of his family’s properties in a 12-foot deep grave.

A day later, DiNardo made a full confession and is said to have expressed “deep remorse”.

According to reports, he said he killed each of the four young men separately after selling them marijuana, then burned and buried their bodies.

He has told them where the remains are to be found.

“In exchange for that confession, Mr DiNardo was promised by the district attorney that he will spare his life by not invoking the death penalty,” said his lawyer Paul Lang.

It has been reported that a judge had dismissed a charge filed against DiNardo for illegally owning a firearm despite his mental illness.

The DiNardo family added in a statement: “As parents, Mr and Mrs DiNardo sympathise with the parents and families of the missing young men and they are cooperating in every way possible with the investigation being conducted by law enforcement.”
