Man faces life in prison for killing ex-girlfriend


A man who admitted to kidnapping and killing his ex-girlfriend in Bucks County will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Kenneth Patterson, 52,  accepted a plea bargain Monday, and was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole for kidnapping and killing 48-year-old Diane Corado.

Investigators say Patterson kidnapped Corado from her Falls Township home, bound her, and then threw her off of a Camden, New Jersey bridge in December of 2010.

Prosecutors say Corado was alive when she was thrown from the bridge.
