A Douglas County (Nebraska) district judge has ruled that Anthony Garcia is competent to stand trial for the murder of four people with connections to the Creighton University pathology program. Garcia was fired from the program in 2001 and prosecutors allege his grudge against the two physicians who fired him—Roger Brumback, MD, and William Hunter, MD—motivated him to commit the murders.

Garcia is charged with the murder of Hunter’s son and house cleaner in 2008 and Brumback and his wife in 2013. He had previously been ruled incompetent to stand trial but two psychiatrists and a psychologist recently testified that he was able to participate in his defense. His trial is scheduled to begin April 4.
