The Allegheny County District Attorney's office Tuesday announced that it will not seek the death penalty in the case against Kenneth Konias, the armored truck employee who is charged with killing his partner in a heist.
, 31, a alumni, was the victim killed in the incident. The men worked for Garda Cash Logistics.
The incident occurred in February in the Strip District. An investigation determined that Konias shot and killed his coworker in the armored vehicle and stole $2.3 million in cash, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. After parking the vehicle underneath the 31st Street Bridge, Konias returned to his job site, which was a short distance away, got into a 2002 tan colored Ford Explorer PA Plate GZW-4572, and fled the area.
Konias eventually drove home to Dravosburg where he left his work jacket. Detectives recovered the jacket along at his home and a citizen turned in his cell phone which was found on Route 51.
Konias was later found in Florida, where he was arrested and brought back to Allegheny County.
