Convicted drug trafficker charged with murder

MILFORD - A man who has been serving time in Massachusetts was extradited to Connecticut to appear in Milford Superior Court today on murder charges.

Daniel Dingui-Cardona is charged with kidnapping and murder in the death of Jose Chevere last August.

Police say Dingui-Cardona is one of three men who kidnapped Chevere from his West Haven home, physically assaulted him and shot him to death.

Dingui-Cardona was arrested in Massachusetts on cocaine trafficking charges some time after the murder and has been imprisoned for the past eight months.
