WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – The brother of a Pennsylvania man convicted of strangling a pharmacist and the pharmacist's girlfriend was arrested after prosecutors say he threatened them after the verdict.
Ronald Selenski Jr. was charged Wednesday with making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct. He was released on his own recognizance Thursday pending a Feb. 26 preliminary hearing.
Prosecutors say the 34-year-old Selenski made the threats after a jury convicted his 41-year-old brother, Hugo Selenski, in the 2002 deaths of Michael Kerkowski and Tammy Fassett.
Their bodies were found buried in Hugo Selenski's yard.
Prosecutors say Ronald Selenski rushed to an elevator at the Luzerne County Courthouse and told an assistant district attorney and a detective inside "I'm going to get you."
They say he gestured as if he were pointing a gun.
