Ex-Hatebreed Drummer Found Guilty Of Felony Murder


The New Haven Register report that ex-Hatebreed drummer, 39-year-old Nicholas Papantoniou, has been found guilty of felony murder and two other charges, which include first-degree burglary and criminal possession of a firearm. He will be sentenced on May 26th and faces up to 90 years in prison. According to testimony entered, back in 2014 Papantoniou shot 56-year-old Larry Dildy in the genitals and stomach, apparently over an alleged $400 debt—though he himself told a different version of the events. Papantoniou‘s time in Hatebreed was short lived, appearing briefly with them live in 1997.
