Hearing set for Indiana man accused in Omaha slayings
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A former doctor accused of killing four people with ties to an Omaha medical school that fired him in 2001 will have a preliminary hearing on Wednesday to determine whether there is enough evidence to try him in Nebraska's felony court. Before the hearing, a judge will hear from Anthony Garcia's attorneys, who want to close the hearing, saying news coverage of it would hurt Garcia's chance of getting a fair trial. Garcia, of Terra Haute, Ind., is charged with four counts of first-degree murder for the 2008 deaths of the 11-year-old son of Creighton University pathologist William Hunter and the family's housekeeper, as well as the May deaths of Creighton pathologist Roger Brumback and his wife. Brumback and Hunter had fired Garcia from the Creighton pathology program.
