New tip puts University of Connecticut student accused of killing 2 in Hagerstown

The University of CT student wanted in connection with two deaths has been captured after a almost weeklong manhunt, officials said Wednesday night.

Manfredonia was found in Hagerstown, Maryland. "This is what is important for the families of the victims", said Trooper First Class Christine Jeltema, a spokeswoman for Connecticut State Police. Manfredonia, a senior, allegedly attacked two men in Willington, Connecticut, killing Theodore Demers, 62, and wounding the unidentified second suspect, according to police.

As the search continued into the week, calls were sent out for Manfredonia to surrender and end the manhunt.

Manfredonia will have a bond hearing Thursday afternoon that will result in his extradition orders to CT and will remain in Maryland until CT officials pick him up, the source said.
