    Trial for a northeastern Pennsylvania man has been postponed until after the conclusion of the trial of his co-defendant in the double-murder case, Hugo Selenski.
     
    Prosecutors and defense attorneys presented a motion to a Luzerne County judge on Tuesday calling for another postponement of the often-delayed trial of 44-year-old Paul Weakley.

      Selenski is scheduled for trial in May in the 2002 strangulation deaths of Michael Kerkowski and Tammy Fassett, whose bodies were among a number of sets of human remains found on his rural property in 2003.
     
    Weakley is serving a life term in a related federal racketeering conspiracy case. He testified in a 2006 trial in which Selenski was acquitted of the murders of two other people found on the property but was convicted of abuse of a corpse.
