Doctor Suspected In Omaha Murders To Return To State
Posted: 18 July, 2013
OMAHA (AP) - A Nebraska prosecutor says a doctor suspected in four slayings in Omaha is set to be returned to the state this week and will be arraigned Monday or Tuesday.
Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said Wednesday that Anthony Garcia, of Terre Haute, Ind., will be arraigned on four counts each of first-degree murder and use of a deadly weapon. The 40-year-old doctor is being held without bond on suspicion of the 2008 stabbing deaths of the 11-year-old son of Dr. William Hunter and Hunter's housekeeper, as well as the May slayings of Dr. Roger Brumback and Brumback's wife. Both Hunter and Brumback fired Garcia from Creighton University's pathology program in 2001. Garcia was arrested Monday in southern Illinois and waived extradition at a hearing Wednesday in an Illinois court hearing.
