According to Berkshire County DA Spokesperson Fred Lantz, 20-year-old Jason Sefton was arrested after turning himself in at Central Berkshire District Court at about 9:30 a.m.

A warrant was issued for Sefton’s arrest after he allegedly stabbed and beat 34-year-old William Catalano on Robbins Avenue in Pittsfield on October 15. Catalano died at Berkshire Medical Center after he was found on a sidewalk with multiple stab wounds and other injuries.
