Tampering, Obstruction Charges Tossed in Homicide Case

Tampering and obstruction charges have been dismissed against the former court-appointed attorney and a private investigator working for a notorious homicide defendant.
A magistrate on Wednesday dismissed the charges against Hugo Selenski's ex-lawyer Shelley Centini, and private investigator and former Pittston police officer James Sulima.
Selenski is a northeastern Pennsylvania man awaiting trial in a 2002 double slaying, whose exploits have included a prison escape and acquittal in another double homicide case.
Prosecutors claimed Centini and Sulima showed threatening letters written by Selenski to witnesses testifying his upcoming double murder trial in Luzerne County.
Selenski is accused of the strangulation deaths of two people whose bodies were recovered among other human remains from his yard outside Wilkes-Barre.
