    The cover sheet stated authorities were searching for the remains of Michael J. Kerkowski, 37, Tammy L. Fassett, 37, and a shovel with a green handle.
    Authorities subsequently recovered the bodies of Kerkowski and Fassett from a shallow grave, and the charred human remains of Adeiye Ossasis Keiler, 22, Frank James, 29, and an unidentified person in garbage bags.

    Trooper Yencha was unaware of the search at Selenski's home, and after reading the cover sheet, he told Selenski, "It looked serious."

    Trooper Yencha asked Selenski if any bodies would be found. Selenski allegedly replied, "Yeah, five of them."
    When Selenski voluntarily replied to Trooper Yencha's question, he was in custody on charges he robbed and threatened Kerkowski's father, Michael Stanley Kerkowski.

    In 2003 at least 5 and possibly as many as twelve bodies were found buried in his back yard. Not all of the bodies have been identified.
    He is on trial for the murders of Frank James, 29, and Adeiye Keiler, 22. He is suspected in the murders of Michael Kerkowski and Kerkowski's girlfriend, Tammy Lynn Fassett whose bodies were unearthed near the home. Possibly drug related, prosecutor's are seeking the death penalty.

    This case was covered on Nancy Grace tonight. A lawyer said there were at least 18 bodies found in this guy's yard.

    Apparently Selewski escaped from jail at some point but I didn't catch WHEN that happened.

    My gosh! The first post on this thread is 2003! :eek:

    This guy needs to get a grip and just sit down, shut up, and let them convict him! :rolleyes:

    I mean, he's already in jail for 32 to 65 years for another crime. I doubt, highly doubt, he'll live long enough to see the outside.:behindbar:

    Anyway, it never ceases to amaze me how some of these guys can drag these things out. I guess after they take other lives, they'll do anything to save their own! Hope he doesn't get out of this one!:banghead:

    I think I saw one link where he was already found 'not guilty' in the murder of two people who's burned corpses were located in his yard! What?

    I guess a lot of people have bodies burned and buried in their yards! Doesn't make them a murderer. :eek: :rolleyes: :crazy:

    just sayin'

    Amesbury takes over Selenski murder trial

    Published: June 29, 2011

    Luzerne County Judge William H. Amesbury will replace Senior Judge Chester B. Muroski on the oft-delayed Hugo Selenski capital murder trial, court administrator John P. Mulroy said Tuesday.

    The case has made its way through the judicial roster, shifting from Muroski to former Senior Judge C. Joseph Rehkamp to Amesbury and back to Muroski within the last 18 months.

    According to prosecutors, Selenski killed Michael Kerkowski and Tammy Fassett and buried their bodies in the yard of a Kingston Township home he shared with a former girlfriend. He faces the death penalty.

    I'm surprised there hasn't been a group of posters following this. Well, it's been going on since '03 or so. I guess people just forgot about it. I see I posted on this thread back in '11 and I forgot about it.

    Here are some links of what's been going on in this case recently.

    The Million Dollar Case? The Cost of Prosecuting Hugo Selenski

    Posted on: 4:53 pm, June 4, 2013, by Dave Bohman

    WILKES-BARRE – Ten years ago this month, investigators found the bodies of Tammy Fassett and Michael Kerkowski in Hugo Selenski’s back yard in Kingston Township in Luzerne County.

    Prosecutors charged Selenski with their murders in 2006.

    He still hasn’t gone to trial. And the legal process is costing taxpayers a small fortune.

    “I can’t understand for the life of me why this has gone on so long,” said Lisa Sands of Meshoppen.
