In 2001, Professor Roger Brumback, and Professor William Hunter, fired Doctor Anthony Garcia from the Creighton University medical school. On Monday, Garcia was arrested in Illinois on 4 charges of first degree murder.
When Garcia was fired, he was a resident at the school. The record shows that he was fired for ‘erratic’ behavior. No additional specifics were revealed.
He has held medical licenses in California, Illinois, and Indiana. His temporary license in Indiana expired in January.
Garcia is charged with the murders committed in May of Professor Roger Brumback and his wife. Their home was broken into, and the professor was shot to death, and his wife was killed with the use of a knife.
He is also being charged for the 2008 home invasion and murders of the 11-year-old son of Professor William Hunter, and the family housekeeper. They were both stabbed to death.
Both of the men lived in upscale neighborhoods in Omaha, Nebraska.
Garcia will face 4 charges of first degree murder.
His arrest took place in Union County, Illinois, which is in the southern part of the state, near the borders of Indiana and Missouri. When Illinois State Police arrested Garcia, he was intoxicated, and had in his possession a .45 caliber pistol.
He is temporarily being held in an Illinois jail. Officers said any questions regarding the investigation should be directed to the Omaha office.
Once Nebraska officials were sure Garcia had committed the murders, they sought the cooperation of surrounding states to find and arrest him
Today, Anthony Garcia sits in an Illinois jail, and will be formerly charged with 4 counts of first degree murder.
