(AP) — A former doctor accused of killing four people with ties to an Omaha medical school will stand trial on four counts of first-degree murder.

Douglas County Judge Darryl Lowe ruled Wednesday that there is enough evidence for Anthony Garcia’s case to go to trial.

Garcia, of Terra Haute, Ind., is charged with four counts of first-degree murder in the 2008 deaths of the 11-year-old son of Creighton University pathologist William Hunter and the family’s housekeeper, as well as the deaths in May of Creighton pathologist Roger Brumback and his wife.

Brumback and Hunter had fired Garcia from the Creighton pathology program in 2001.
