(AP) — A former doctor accused of killing four people with ties to an Omaha medical school that fired him in 2001 now also faces a charge of attempted burglary.

Anthony Garcia appeared in court Thursday because his lawyers unsuccessfully asked a judge to order prosecutors to disclose evidence to the defense more quickly.

Prosecutors said they added the burglary charge because forensic evidence linked the 40-year-old Garcia to an attempted break-in at the home of another Creighton University Medical School professor.

Garcia, of Terra Haute, Ind., is charged with 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.

    This dude is a cold blooded sociopath. Gets fired in 01 moves several states away, comes back 7 years later murders a family and disapears without a trace…pretty much got away with that one had he stayed away. Then waits another 5 years and drives several states over again to kill another family. Makes me wonder how many other unsolved murders are on this asshat because he felt someone wronged him.
