FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Authorities in Flint have added a new charge of attempted murder against a man accused of a serial stabbing spree.
Elias Abuelazam now is charged with three murders and six attempted murders in Genesee County, Mich., as well as an attempted murder in Toledo, Ohio.
The new charge filed Tuesday accuses Abuelazam of stabbing Antoine Jackson in Burton, near Flint, on July 12. Police found him rolling around in grass with many wounds.
Fourteen people were stabbed in the Flint area last spring and summer, and five died. Abuelazam is also suspected but not charged in similar attacks in Leesburg, Va.
He's held in jail without bond. Defense lawyer Brian Morley had no comment.
