"I'm innocent," Joseph Kerekes claims in the slaying of local gay porn film producer.

"Eating at restaurants, buying camping supplies at a local department store and lifting weights at a local gym were some of the activities Joseph Kerekes and Harlow Cuadra enjoyed while in the area on Jan. 23 and Jan. 24.

Kerekes, 33, and Cuadra, 25, were arraigned Tuesday in connection to the Jan. 24 homicide of Bryan Kocis inside Kocis' Dallas Township home.

In a jailhouse interview at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility Wednesday morning, Kerekes admitted that they were in the area staying at the Fox Ridge Inn in Plains Township. Kerekes says that Cuadra was at Kocis' home, but never fully entered because he smelled smoke and heard a noise on the second floor.

Kerekes denied he had any involvement in the murder. When the investigation centered on them, Kerekes said they stayed for several months at a condo in South Beach, Miami"

One minute they claim to have never traveled to Luzerne County... and now the story starts to change... hmm...
