The man charged over the infamous Claremont serial killings has made his second court appearance in Perth, with the case adjourned for eight weeks.

Bradley Robert Edwards, 48, is accused of murdering Jane Rimmer in 1996 and Ciara Glennon, who disappeared during a night out in Claremont in 1997.

Edwards is also accused of the rape of a 17-year-old girl in 1995 and the indecent assault of another woman in 1988.

Edwards is not facing any charges relating to Sarah Spiers, who disappeared from Claremont in January 1996.

He appeared in the Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court this morning via video link from Hakea prison and did not enter pleas to the charges against him.

He was remanded in custody until his next court appearance in March.
