According to court records, police found a blood-soaked knife inside the home and strands of hair in the hands of victims Justin Plackowski and Olivia Dworakowski.

At a hearing Monday, DuPage County Judge Robert Kleeman granted a motion by prosecutors requiring Plackowska to submit to DNA testing. The defense did not object.
