A Pittsfield man accused of murder is being held without bail after turning himself in Monday morning.
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.
Lantz said Sefton entered a not guilty plea during his arraignment. He is due back in court on November 16 for a status conference.
Sefton is the third person to be charged with Catalano’s murder.
Twenty-eight-year-old Bruce Romano and 22-year-old Anthony Boone also entered non-guilty pleas at their arraignments.
