It would take to long to review all of twists of the Hugo Selenski case so I'm just going to post the latest as it happens.
On Monday Selenski's escape partner surprised everyone by pleading guilty to attempted escape. This was surprising because he has always said that Selenski pushed him out of the window. Bolton also pleaded guilty Monday to stealing an all-terrain vehicle from a home in Sugarloaf Township, Columbia County, in January 2002 and is facing a long sentence because of a long criminal history.
During a pre-trial hearing last week Selenski's lawyer told him to "Shut up and sit down. When you're in the courtroom, I'm in charge." And his girlfriend Christina Strom, 32, agreed to cooperate with authorities in the investigation.
Adding to the unfolding drama a key defense witness, Dr. Cyril Wecht, the former Allegheny County medical examiner has been indicted for corruption.
