There was a nice paper by Slowinski & Keogh inthe journal Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution in 2001 - don't have the exact reference at hand.
Basically, as far as I recall, Aspidelaps and Paranaja group with other cobras, whereas Elapsoidea is pretty much out on its own, without closer affinties with anything else.
E-mail me and I will send you an Adobe Acrobat file of the paper when I get back to my office after Easter.
