New Jersey

Police in three states are looking for a man wanted in the slaying of a 62-year-old man and a 23-year-old man.

Police say the 23-year-old man wanted in the Connecticut slaying of an elderly man and the death of an acquaintance could be in New Jersey.

According to Connecticut Police, Mr. Peter Manfredonia allegedly killed one man and attacked another with an edged weapon in Willington on Friday morning, officials said.

It's unclear what prompted the fatal attack on Theodore Demers, 62.

Pistols and long guns were stolen from the home, police said.

Manfredonia also allegedly took the home owner's vehicle.

According to police, Manfredonia, who's considered armed and dangerous, is believed to have traveled from Willington to the home of an acquaintance in Derby.

Police found the body of 23-year-old Nicholas Eisele inside.

A 2016 black Volkswagen Jetta was taken from the home. The Jetta was found in New Jersey near the Pennsylvania border, police said.

New Jersey and Pennsylvania law enforcement agencies are actively searching for Manfredonia.

He was last seen wearing a gray shirt and gray pants.

Police warned people not to approach him. Anyone with information, please contact Eastern District Major Crime – Troop C at (860) 896-3200
