A remote court hearing has been held for a former UConn student accused of killing two people in 2020. Peter Manfredonia appeared virtually from Garner Correctional Institution, where he is being held in lieu of bond. A prosecutor told the judge that she is beginning to work out a plea offer for the 25-year-old. He faces charges of murder, felony murder, kidnapping, home invasion, robbery and carrying a pistol without a permit in connection with the killing of fellow Newtown High graduate Nicholas Eisele in Derby and the kidnapping of Eisele’s girlfriend. A different State’s Attorney is handling charges related to Manfredonia’s alleged samurai sword attack on two men in Willington and home invasion of a nearby house prior to the killing of Eisele. The Derby case was continued to another remote hearing on July 28th.
