Cops question man in connection to 2 NYC hotel deaths

A man is being questioned by police in the deaths of two women in two different New York City hotels just months apart.



Police say 36-year-old Joseph Danclair was seen on video entering the hotels with the women and leaving alone. 



Officers say Danclair's fingerprints were pulled from one of the crime scenes. Police say similarities between the two murder scenes led them to believe the crimes were committed by the same person.



Officials say Chrissy Bevelaqua was found dead inside the Bushwick Hotel on July 23. They say the body of Antoinette Marin was discovered earlier this month at the Manhattan Broadway Hotel in Manhattan. 



Law enforcement sources also say Danclair has a history of drug-related arrests.
