A longtime Democratic operative in New Jersey pled guilty Tuesday to a murder-for-hire plot to kill a former state senator’s son.
Sean Caddle and Bomani Africa, one of the men hired by Caddle, both pled guilty to conspiring to commit murder-for-hire, according to the Associated Press (AP).
Caddle allegedly hired George Bratsenis in April 2014 to kill Michael Galdieri, AP reported. Both Bratsenis and Africa allegedly killed Galdieri the following month and set his apartment on fire.
Galdieri and Caddle worked with each other and had been acquaintances for years, AP reported. Officials have not yet released a motive in the murder.
Galdieri’s brother Richie Galdieri posted to Facebook about Caddle on Monday.
“I had given up. I thought for sure the day would never come. I had resolved myself to the fact that who ever did this to my brother got away with murder … well … almost 8 years later, at 7am this morning, 3 FBI agents rang my bell … They got ’em, Mike … they got em,” Galdieri’s post reads.
Caddle had previously worked on former Democratic state Sen. Ray Lesniak’s 2013 and 2017 campaigns, AP reported.
