The Utica man accused of killing three family members in January made a brief appearance in Oneida County Court on Monday.

Paul Bumbolo's attorney, Public Defender Luke Nebush, asked Judge Michael Dwyer for more time to interview an additional witness as he prepares his defense.

Dwyer said while he's becoming more and more frustrated with the speed of the court proceedings, he adjourned the case for another week.

The judge still hasn't ruled whether statements Bumbolo made to police following his arrest will be admissible at trial.

Bumbolo is facing one count of first-degree murder and three counts of second-degree murder in the stabbing deaths of his adoptive mother, uncle and step sister at their Whitesboro Street home on January 7th..

He'll be back in court next Monday.
