SAN DIEGO — The sister of a man suspected of kidnapping a 16-year-old girl and killing her mother and younger brother says she no longer wants paternity tests to determine if the suspect fathered the children.

Lora Robinson said Tuesday that she hasn't asked for DNA to determine if James DiMaggio fathered the children and she doesn't plan to. Last week, a DiMaggio family spokesman said she wanted DNA of Hannah and Ethan Anderson.

Robinson says the request was prompted by rumors that her brother fathered the children but that she doesn't think a test is needed.

DiMaggio was killed by FBI agents in the Idaho wilderness Aug. 10 after allegedly killing Christina and Ethan Anderson in his San Diego-area home.
