MANORVILLE - A Manorville man accused in the cold case murders of two prostitutes had his case adjourned until Thursday.

Prosecutors tied John Bittrolff to the mid-1990s murders of Colleen McNamee and Rita Tangredi.

The DA is investigating whether Bittrolff is also connected to the death of Sandra Costilla in 1994.

Cops picked up Bittrolff after his brother was arrested in an unrelated case and his DNA showed a family connection to murder evidence.
