WILKES-BARRE — With his existing defense team intact, accused double murderer Hugo Selenski will stand trial on June 24, a county judge said Thursday.

But the sister of murder victim Tammy Fassett says she’s not going to hold her breath after the trial has been delayed a number of times over the years.

“In two weeks, it’ll be 11 years (since Fassett was murdered),” Lisa Sands said. “My sister would say hang on. Be strong.”

Selenski, 39, of Kingston Township, is awaiting trial in the May 3, 2002 deaths of Michael Kerkowski and Fassett, both 38. Their bodies were unearthed from the property where Selenski was living in June, 2003.
