Selenski Attorney Dismissed, Trial Rescheduled
WILKES-BARRE — The attorney representing accused double murderer Hugo Selenski has been dismissed from the case following charges of witness intimidation.
Selenski, his former attorney Shelley Centini, and a defense investigator were all charged last month with witness intimidation.
Selenski is charged with the 2002 deaths of pharmacist Michael Kerkowski and his girlfriend Tammy Fassett .
“I would think that he would have mental problems if decides that he wants to,” Selenski said as he was led from the courthouse, referring to whoever is now assigned to be his lawyer.
After removing Centini from Selenski’s case on Monday, a Luzerne County judge moved the trial date from March to May.
