CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — UPDATE (May 28): Manfredonia was arrested in Maryland.

PREVIOUSLY: The suspect in a Connecticut homicide case last seen in East Stroudsburg, Monroe County may have been spotted in Chambersburg, according to a press release issued Wednesday by State Police.

Peter Manfredonia is a suspect in the murder of a 62-year-old man last Friday in Willington, Connecticut and a 23-year-old man Sunday in Derby, Connecticut, authorities say.

Manfredonia allegedly abducted the 23-year-old victim's girlfriend and stole his car. The car and the alleged abducted woman were found near the Pennsylvania border in Patterson, NJ on Sunday.

Police say Manfredonia took an Uber ride to East Stroudsburg, where he was last seen walking along railroad tracks near the Walmart store where he was dropped off.
