Federal court documents say Tartaglione killed one of those men at a Chester bar.

Tartaglione then allegedly moved the other three men to his Otisville property, where the court filings say he killed them, and buried all four victims.           

Last month federal prosecutors announced they were seeking the death penalty against him.
