Federal prosecutors say two suspects have confessed to last week's killing of a violinist with the Chautauqua Institution's symphony orchestra.
It was just before 7:00 last Wednesday morning when Jonathan Conklin and Charles Sanford, two homeless men from Erie, Pennsylvania, were outside of Mary Whitaker's summer home in the Chautauqua County town of Westfield.
According to the criminal complaint the two men had concocted a plan to rob the home's owner. Why?
"Conklin told Sanford he wanted to live like a rock star."
Under the plan, Sanford would knock on the door of a home picked at random and tell the homeowner he had run out of gas and needed to borrow a phone.
