Documents say, “Dinardo said they drove around the property on his ATV and that Kratz was going to rob Finocchiaro in the woods…He said Kratz did not rob Finocchiaro in the woods and they went into the barn. As they were leaving the barn, Kratz shot Finocchiaro in the head. DiNardo took the gun from Kratz and also shot Finocchiaro while he was laying face down on the floor, but claimed Finocciaro was already dead when he shot him.” DiNardo “took a blue tarp from the corn crib and wrapped Finocchiaro in it. He tried to drag Finocchiaro out of the barn on the side facing the corn crib. The tarp got stuck on a nail so he had to use the backhoe to remove him from the barn. He placed Finocchiaro into a metal tank he referred to as the pig roaster” claim the documents.
Kratz reportedly has a long criminal history including an open burglary. Philadelphia Magazine reports that Sean Kratz “was out on bail for burglary, criminal trespassing, theft and other charges stemming from two pending burglary cases in Philadelphia courts. In March, he posted 10 percent of $10,000 bail,” reports. Philly.com reports that Kratz “was implicated twice last year in connected burglary cases in Philadelphia.”
