A former housemate of the teen charged with killing Pamela Vitale testified at a preliminary hearing that he found a gruesome to-do list left in a dresser drawer used by Scott Dyleski linking him to the crime.

David Curiel, who moved into the room in which Dyleski formerly lived, said a note written in Dyleski's handwriting said, "Knock out/kidnap, question, keep captive to confirm PIN, dirty work, dispose of evidence (cut up and bury)."

The preliminary hearing is being conducted to determine if there is enough evidence linking 17-year-old Dyleski to the Oct. 15 murder of Pamela Vitale (pictured) to hold him over for trial. He is being charged as an adult.

Curiel also testified at the hearing that he overheard Dyleski telling his girlfriend, "Once they find my DNA on her body, they're going to come after me."

Prosecutors believe Dyleski used credit card information stolen from neighborhood mail boxes to order marijuana-growing equipment and had it shipped to neighbors' addresses, including the home of attorney Daniel Horowitz and his wife Vitale.

Police originally did not have Dyleski on their list of suspects, until a friend of his reported suspicions to his attorney. Dyleski was arrested after the friend and attorney came forward with the information.
