CLINTON TOWNSHIP (WWJ) - An extradition hearing is being held Friday in Ohio for the Macomb County man accused of killing his sister and her boyfriend.  

Robert Marzejka Jr., 24, was arrested by U.S. Marshals Wednesday at a library in Cincinnati -- wearing a long wig, trying to disguise himself.

Clinton Township police zeroed in on Marzejka after he reported finding the bodies of his 18-year-old sister Danielle Marzejka and her 19-year-old boyfriend Seren Bryan. 

According to Clinton Township police, the couple lived with the young woman's father at the Rudgate Clinton mobile home park in the area of Metro Parkway and Groesbeck Hwy. The teens were last seen alive Thursday morning, the father reported them missing Saturday, and Marzejka claimed he discovered their bodies Sunday night. 

The bodies were stuffed in trash bags and hidden inside a shed, according to police, but authorities have not said how they believe the pair was killed. The remains were handed over to the Macomb County Medical Examiner, but no details about autopsy results have been released.

After initially being interviewed by police, Marzejka fled and a manhunt was launched. A first-degree murder warrant was issued Wednesday

A candlelight vigil for the couple is planned for Sunday at the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church in St. Clair Shores.
