A UPS employee accused of fatally assaulting a colleague who was helping deliver packages, told police he stabbed the man to death before escaping into the woods. It was the result of an arrest warrant issued on Thursday. His arrest came after a 3-hour manhunt, WFSB-TV’s CBS Hartford reports.

When he was pulled over by state police at a gas station in Plymouth on Wednesday afternoon, Elijah David Bertrand, 19, of Bristol, asked officers: ‘Why has it taken so long to get me find? according to the order.
The document says Bertrand was found after using his debit card at the gas station, the WFSB said.
Bertrand was charged with murder on Thursday, accused of killing Waterbury UPS driver Nathan Burk, 28. The warrant stated that Bertrand was working as Burk’s “assistant / runner” on Tuesday, the day of the attack.
One reason remains uncertain.
Bertrand’s bond was maintained at $ 2 million, according to the WFSB.
His lawyer, Robert Pickering, called for the bond to be lowered, arguing that Bertrand posed no air risk and had a close connection to the state. Betrand is scheduled to appear in court again on January 6.
Pickering told The Associated Press the case was “a terrible thing for everyone involved,” especially since it took place just before Christmas and during the coronavirus pandemic.
“The empathy of my client’s family is incredible,” she says. “Whether my client is responsible or not, this young man’s death should never have happened during Christmas time.”
Joseu Dorelus said?
Bertrand and Burk were apparently in the same vehicle, state agent Joseu Dorelus said at a press conference on Wednesday. According to the arrest warrant, the couple stopped by Burk’s daughter and had dinner for about an hour before handing over the UPS truck.
Burk’s friend called her boyfriend half an hour later, hoping he would come home by then as the house is near the UPS warehouse. But the calls were not returned, the order said.
Officers first responded to a call about an accident involving a UPS truck in Watertown on Tuesday night. They found the vehicle on the north shoulder of Highway 8. Burk did not respond and collapsed on the steering wheel in what appeared to be stab wounds.
A bloody jackknife was found at the scene, which Bertrand’s father later confirmed to police about his son. Waterbury prosecutor Maureen Platt said in court that Burk had been stabbed eight times.
Burk was taken to hospital and pronounced dead.
On Wednesday, dozens of Burk’s loved ones and colleagues gathered outside the UPS facility in Watertown. Many said they wanted answers.
“We all want to know. We all want to know why,” one of them told the WFSB.
“It’s just heartbreaking … she was such a good soul,” Kerry Langdeau of Waterbury told NBC Connecticut.
“I got up in the morning. I was ready to deliver probably 200 packages and go home, and I will never go home,” said Sean O’Brien, secretary and treasurer of Teamsters Joint Council 10, a union serving New Yorkers. Represents pilots. England. .
